Distributed Computing Links
Distributed Computing refers to an effort of many computers all working towards a common goal. Recently, this has been used to crack elaborate encryption schemes, which would take an ordinary PC hundreds, if not thousands, of years to crack. Distributed computing has proven that such an encryption scheme, using tens of thousands of computers all working together, can be broken in a matter of months. Now, more uses are being found for distributed computing that don’t deal with decryption, but with actual real-world problems.
