It is with considerable excitement (and quite a bit of relief) that I can
now announce that the DES-III contest is officially ended.
At 07:15 am PST (14:15 UTC), just about the time when we all started

The unknown message is: See you in Rome (second AES conference,
March 22-23, 1999
The winning key was found by EFF's Deep Crack hardware, and submitted to
the distributed.net servers immediately. RSA confirmation of the success
followed shortly thereafter.

contributions to distributed.net, the 24-hour deadline would have been
a much more difficult goal to reach.
I'll be running stats for the partial 19-Jan work up to the point of
success and posting them this afternoon for the archives.
More details will follow soon as the dust settles, RSA is planning a
12:00 noon PST announcement at the RSA '99 Convention. Both John Gilmore
and our own Peter Gildea will be in attendance.
Here's a few statistics on our aggregate success:
