I don't think anyones done much serious research on cracking

DES since early 1999, when distributed.net and EFF's Deep Crack

did it together in under 24 hours.

The task scales almost perfectly: double the money, halve the

time. How much ya got?

If one were to rotate keys every hour how much more secure would that make

things?
