Crack the Code In US Cyber Command's Logo

samzenpus posted about 4 years ago | from the hardy-boys-wanted dept.

Encryption 380

Dan writes "According to Wired: 'The US military's new Cyber Command is headquartered at Ft. Meade, Maryland, one of the military's most secretive and secure facilities. Its mission is largely opaque, even inside the armed forces. But the there's another mystery surrounding the emerging unit. It's embedded in the Cyber Command logo. On the logo's inner gold ring is a code: 9ec4c12949a4f31474f299058ce2b22a.'"

No they don't. It was trivial. Perhaps I should say: The First part was trivial.

Don't tell me I am the only one that noticed how oddly worded that is? I mean, if you are just going to md5 something, why word it so poorly? Why the double meaning of 'domains'?

Maybe I am reading too much into it, but my experience show that this would be typical double meaning often used by covert operations.

When they said in the article that it had to do with their mission, I figured it must be a hash of "Use Fear Uncertainty, Doubt, and Lies to bilk the taxpayers out of as much money as possible while providing absolutely no tangible benefit to anyone."

Re:md5? (1)

betterunixthanunix (980855) | about 4 years ago | (#32839230)

MD5 is "broken" in the sense that collisions can be found in certain situations. This makes MD5 bad for cryptographic purposes, yes, but it is not exactly useless. Also, considering that cyber command has limited space on its logo, a stronger hash function which generates longer hashes might have been difficult to use.

Re:md5? (0)

However, if this group is any indication people will be too busy talking about how stupid it is before they realize it's multipart.
At which time they will conveniently forget THEY where the ones being stupid. I wan't to be sure the world know they're stupid.

Oh I know! It's the original draft of the Constitution of the United States! Imagine that, all in 16 bytes! What amazing compression! Really, you're not going to fit much "meaningful" beyond a telephone number in a ciphertext THAT small. It's a hash.

Think about it. What organization wouldn't be at least somewhat interested in trying to put their entire mission statement in their logo? Success. And appropriate for them to use a hash for it. Although their choice of hash was poor. You'd think they would have used a more modern hash that's considered more secure? But maybe they wanted to go with that because they weren't intending for it to be secure, just fit, and be appropriate.

I think a SHA256 sum would have been too long to fit on the logo:

7521ea74913335fc0fb3a47dfa0ca32636ff59bceabadee0dcfbf25ad85a03eb

That is twice as long as the MD5 hash; the logo has limited space, and I am guessing they did not want to force people to use a magnifying glass to see the numbers.

One ring to rule them all.....

Wait a minute... (5, Insightful)

natehoy (1608657) | about 4 years ago | (#32839328)

It's written in an obscure script on the inside of a golden ring?

Well, duh. Isn't it obvious?

"Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie."

Quick! We need some midgets and an active volcano!

Bluray (1)

CODiNE (27417) | about 4 years ago | (#32839332)

It's the key for the Eagle Eye bluray release.

I don't know why they would have that in their logo, seems kind of random to me.

Wait... is that a... a construction crane?? Whoah... looks like it's coming in this dir$@HHXxXXXX____

NO CARRIER

Cyber Command doesn't understand MD5 do they. (1)

craftycoder (1851452) | about 4 years ago | (#32839338)

The article suggests that it can be "decoded" which just goes to show how uninformed the Cyber Commands PR guy is. A hash is a one way function. Furthermore, by the function's nature an endless supply of inputs will hash into the string he offered.

ug..people it's simple. (-1, Redundant)

USCYBERCOM plans, coordinates, integrates, synchronizes and conducts activities to: direct the operations and defense of specified Department of Defense information networks and; prepare to, and when directed, conduct full spectrum military cyberspace operations

I'm sure their is a rainbow table out there that also has it.

If this is the hardest they can do, they should be ashamed of themselves.

I can't be the only genius on slashdot. ... I mean statistically. empirically it would seem I am.

Beware the word "cyber" (4, Insightful)

Where you see the word cyber, there is an idiot nearby waiting to waste your money.

Obviously.... (5, Funny)

It's the WEP key for their WiFi. Handy for all staff who forget easily.
