Hi all,

We are pleased to announce that we have set a new record for the elliptic
curve discrete logarithm problem (ECDLP) by solving it over a 112-bit
finite field. The previous record was for a 109-bit prime field and
dates back from October 2002. Our calculation was done on a cluster of
more than 200 PlayStation 3 game consoles at the EPFL.

See for more details our announcement at http://lacal.epfl.ch/page81774.html.

Best regards,

Joppe Bos
