Encryption Key Search using Java-based ALiCE Grid
Encryption Key Search is a compute-intensive operation that consists of a brute-force search of a particular key in a given key space. Sequential execution time for a 56-bit encryption key search is approximately 200,000 years and therefore it is ideal to execute such operation in a grid environment. ALiCE (Adaptive and scaLable internet-based Computing Engine) is a grid middleware that offers a portable software technology for developing and deploying grid applications and systems. This paper discusses the development of the Encryption Key Search application on ALiCE and also presents the performance evaluation of ALiCE using this application.
