In Digg Nation - The Number Game

I am firm believer in protecting intellectual property. I own a bunch of it.

But I draw the line at owning a number. A trade secret is keeping the number you use a "secret". They need to do a better job at keeping secrets or use a different technology.

Prime number keys will always be vulnerable to massive parallel attacks. But there are more difficult mathematical transformations that can be used.

And that's my $2.0 x 10E-2.
