Submission + - IAEA Cracks Nuclear Ring's Hard Drive Encryption (

this great guy writes: A NY Times article about the nuclear smuggling network ran by Abdul Qadeer Khan reveals: 'It was not until 2005 that officials of the I.A.E.A., which is based in Vienna, finally cracked the hard drives on the Khan computers recovered around the world. And as they sifted through files and images on the hard drives, investigators found tons of material [...]. In all, they found several terabytes of data, a huge amount to sift through.'. Given that Khan's revelations were made in early 2004, does that mean it took the IAEA 1-2 years to bruteforce the encryption ? Did they receive help from the NSA ?
