    Description: Moo! Wrapper brings together BOINC volunteer computing network resources and the Distributed.net projects. It allows a BOINC Client to participate in the RC5-72 challenge.

    The "Bovine" RC5 effort was formed to take the responsibilities of coordinating and maintaining the RC5 servers that are needed to distribute key blocks to work on to all of the participating client programs. We depend heavily (entirely) on the participation of people like yourself, as we intend to solve this project via the use of brute force, trying every possible key there is.
    We know this method works! On 19 October 1997 at 1325 UTC, we found the correct solution for the RSA Labs 56-bit secret-key challenge (RC5-32/12/7). The key was 0x532B744CC20999, and it took us 250 days to locate.
    Then, on 14 July 2002 at 0150 UTC we found the winning key for the RSA Labs 64-bit secret-key challenge (RC5-32/12/8). That key was 0x63DE7DC154F4D039 and took us 1,757 days to locate. As of 03 December 2002, we're now working on the 72-bit RSA Labs secret-key challenge (RC5-32/12/9). In summary:
    • RC5-56: 'The unknown message is: It's time to move to a longer key length'
    • RC5-64: 'The unknown message is: Some things are better left unread'
    • RC5-72: ??? (in progress; you can help!)
    In May 2007, RSA Labs announced that Secret Key Challenge would be discontinued. Fortunately, due to the continued interest in our RC5-72 project we have decided to privately sponsor the prize and operate the RC5-72 project as before. You can read about this in bovine's 2008-Sep-08 plan and in bovine's 2007-May-21 plan.


    Institution: Private.


    Official Launch: 02-05-2011.


    Project Status: Active. Be warned that there are some controversy surrounding the legitimacy of this project. Read the Message Board to see the current situation.


    Client Programs: Moo! Wrapper currently has the following applications. When you participate in Moo! Wrapper, work for one or more of these applications will be assigned to your computer. The current version of the application will be downloaded to your computer. This happens automatically; you don't have to do anything.
