Submission + - Researchers Break RSA SecurID Token in 13 Minutes (

An anonymous reader writes: An international team of scientists that goes by the name of "Team Prosecco" claims to have devised attacks that manage to extract the secret cryptographic key from RSA's SecurID 800 token, as well as many other similar commercial solutions. According to the paper they are scheduled to present this August at the CRYPTO 2012 conference, what makes these exploits extremely usable is the time it takes them to extract the needed information: 13 minutes. As they pointed out, the attacks are efficient enough to be practical.
