Brute force PGP key ID
----------------------
Brute force PGP key ID (inefficiently)
--------------------------------------
The script that brute forces key IDs uses a modified version of gnupg that removes all the entropy from key generation, which makes it very quick and very insecure. To run it on your computer, making it a very high priority process:
nice -20 ./brute_force_keyid.py
### To do list
* Make keyid and number of threads command line arguements
* Make ctrl-c actually quit so you don't have to kill the process
Download the web of trust
-------------------------
I wrote a script to recursively download the web of trust, one key at a time. However it's horrible ineffecient and will take forever to finish running. To start downloading the web of trust:
./download_strong_set.py
A better way to get public keys is to download a recent static dump of all the keys in the public key servers from one of these places:
* ftp://ftp.prato.linux.it/pub/keyring/dump-latest/
* http://keyserver.borgnet.us/dump/
Although it actually turns out that this is an inefficient way to brute force key IDs.
