Crypto challenge, 10 Ether of prizes

Kudelski Security is launching a new crypto challenge for Black Hat. It starts today and ends on July 25th at our private party in Las Vegas. The challenge and instructions are available at https://github.com/kudelskisecurity/cryptochallenge17.

In short, here’s how it works:

  • We give you the code of a service running on some remote host. As you’ll find out, this service receives a message and returns a cryptographic signature of this message.
  • Your goal is to write a program that creates valid signatures of the same type and using the same key (obviously, not by just copying a signature received from our service) .

Prizes will have to be claimed in person at our party in Las Vegas, the evening before the Black Hat briefings: 5 ETH, 3 ETH, and 2 ETH for the first, second, and third place winners. The ranking is established by the time of your submission, to our email address cryptochallenge@kudelskisecurity.com. We recommend that you encrypt your message, using the following public key:
