The NSA has more supercomputer access than anyone else on Earth. If they can break 1024-bit encryption, they could easily track all cellphone calls.
Show me where they claim to be able to do this. The NSA has done nothing intelligent when it comes to encryption. They've seeded back doors into applications and brute-forced very simple private keys, but actually decrypting RSA 1024-bit encryption is not possible with even the most advanced farms of servers. Not yet, anyway. Quantum computing is a ways off. With current hardware, even in the best case scenarios and an estimated 100,000 dual-octo core processor servers with 1TB/s fiber backplanes, it would take over 10 years to crack a properly-implemented encryption algorithm assuming large primes greater than or equal to half of the large primes used below 1024-bit encryption or greater than 75% of large primes.
The NSA computer = The Beast?
