Fast Factoring Integers by SVP Algorithms: “This Destroys the RSA Cryptosystem.” [pdf] (iacr.org)
14 points by sb057 40 days ago | hide | past | favorite | 4 comments

"This Destroys the RSA Cryptosystem.” is a strong claim. I only have very base knowledge of RSA cryptosystems, integer factorization and the like. Especially I'm not into the math of pn-smooth integers etc. :-) Is there an expert here to comment on this, e.g. if this only applies to a subset of RSA parameters or if the the whole RSA-cryptosystem is affected?

What happened to "this destroys RSA"?
