Perhaps it is the entity that can create as a search for employees who can solve it for their business. So hold a contest instead of a breaker to be an employee of thought only. Cool

Nobody admitted the find, so private key is unknown.

The private key is 0x6abe1f9b67e114

Code:
Private key : 000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000006abe1f9b67e114

I am assuming that you found out the private key yourself? I mean how did you get this info?

Well damn I can't code so there goes that option,Everything else can be ignored if we compare to the ripemd160 hash. Its certainly possible to design an ASIC for this and it might even be profitable for someone to do so in the future.

No, I didn't find the key. I just got this info from this transaction https://blockchain.info/it/tx/ecc8c09284a6f9e6d52cccf7f8f4aef1d0c4a33984375dea4cea70923066078d on blockchain that moved for the first time funds from that address.

You lost me here. You were asked about the private key, and you are saying you got it from transaction information?!? What am I missing here?

From the transaction I got the public key related to the address 1LzhS3k3e9Ub8i2W1V8xQFdB8n2MYCHPCa.

You can get the private key from a public key only if you know already that the private key lies in a very limited range (in this case from 2^54 to 2^55)

Can you please explain the method you were using to accomplish this magic? 2^55 - 2^54 = 1.8 x 10^16, that's a lot of private keys to check by brute-forcing them. What you are claiming doesn't make sense at all.

Can you please explain the method you were using to accomplish this magic? 2^55 - 2^54 = 1.8 x 10^16, that's a lot of private keys to check by brute-forcing them. What you are claiming doesn't make sense at all.

Getting the private key from a public key is known as "the elliptic curve discrete logarithm problem".

There are several algorithms to solve this problem:

1) brute force attack  (roughly p steps, you mean this method)

2) Pollard Rho (roughly sqrt(p) steps, based on birthday paradox)

3) Baby Step - Giant Step ( roughly sqrt(p) steps if you have enough memory space to store sqrt(p) points)

(p = number of points = number of private keys )



Take a look at:

http://andrea.corbellini.name/2015/06/08/elliptic-curve-cryptography-breaking-security-and-a-comparison-with-rsa/

http://www.cs.umd.edu/~gasarch/COURSES/198/Su14/baby.pdf


I used the Baby Step - Giant Step applied to a search space of 2^54 points --> 2^27 steps (more or less). It took about 18 seconds to retrieve the private key. Obviously if I had to search the private key in the entire search space of 2^256 points, I couldn't perform the 2^128 required steps (this is computationally infeasible).


If you don't believe me, pick a random 55 bit private key (below 0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000080000000000000), then generate a public key (you can use http://gobittest.appspot.com/Address), post the public key here --> I will retrieve your private key

When do you calculate a private address for a 56bit puzzle?

When do you calculate a private address for a 56bit puzzle?

This "trick" is explained here and in LBC thread.
If someone spends PART of puzzle56, then Arulbero (or anyone who is capable of) can spend the rest.

I guess, this doesn't prove regular BTC wallets to be vulnerable, as their location in 2^159 address space is unknown.

Anyway huge respect to arulbero. He definitely didn't sleep at math classes.

I think that a novice programmer can find 56. Here that there will be further through 10-20 steps...

You talk some crap as usual, there are no spends on p56, so public address is unknown.

Well and how he from a transaction the public key received? sent a bit bitcoin to the address? What prevents him from doing the same thing with 56? I gave him an approximate search space.

8140<->8156 in this range multiplied by 128 6 times should be 56 (if we proceed from the previous steps not 357 and not 359).
