First place of what? :-) We (the deschall group) are doing >
500Mkeys/sec.

Plus, we'll soon be able to traverse firewalls, which we hope will
significantly increase the number of available clients.

Our status reports are available at http://www.frii.com/~rcv/desstat.htm

Stop playing around with <10Mkeys/sec and join us. :-) That's a lot of
keys, but if everyone can coordinate their efforts together, the
faster we'll get through the keyspace and prove that DES is too weak
for real applications...
