Slashdot: particular public key cryptography broken

At least, I certainly hope it only applies to this particular instance…

Link to a better story from the article: https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2017/10/crypto-failure-cripples-millions-of-high-security-keys-750k-estonian-ids/

it’s just that specific implementation is broken - https://github.com/crocs-muni/roca

we’re safe yet.

hodl!

Most (all?) crypto currency address are hashes of a public key. I was thinking more about other applications that do share actual public keys, such as GPG.
