"Separate papers at the FPGA 2000 conference here this week highlighted how programmable logic can be used to create or crack data encryption schemes. One paper outlined attempts to implement a cryptography algorithm in programmable hardware, while another showed how an FPGA's architecture can speed the effort to factorize large numbers, a task essential for cracking common public-key encoding schemes."
