GPU Cryptography

Post by Monk »

Would be cool to have a cryptography system where you can load values from a file into a texture on a OPENGL surface and apply different filters/transformations to the surface to generate a new image. The final image is the encrypted/decrypted file. Since modern GPU's have multiple pixel pipelines theoretically you can encrypt/decrypt messages quite fast. Kind of curious if the output image would be different from card to card (do to the way the OPENGL are implemented in the drivers). I believe people have already done something similar when generating rainbow tables. Just an idea for a crackme =).

Edit: Looks like if you google gpu crpytography you can find some cool papers.

For the record it has been somewhat suggested before, but with DX shaders... (no troll intended)

If you come to do things on the subject, I (and the CRCEKL) are very interested, although sucking at crypto. =)
