NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Crown Sterling Also Announces Completion of New White Paper: “Novel 
Geometric Methods for Semiprime Factorization”

Crown Sterling, an emerging digital cryptography firm, today announced 
that yesterday at approximately 5:15 p.m. Pacific Time, the company 
conducted a live demonstration and decrypted two RSA asymmetric public 
keys at a public gathering at Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Beach, 
California. Crown Sterling hosted the event with 100+ academics and 
business professionals in attendance, where Crown Sterling Computer 
Scientists decrypted two 256-bit asymmetric public keys in approximately 
50 seconds from a standard laptop computer. Crown Sterling also 
announced the consistent decryption of 512-bit asymmetric public key in 
as little as five hours also using standard computing. The video of the 
decryption demonstration can be found here:

Crown Sterling also announced the completion of a new white paper to be 
submitted for peer review, “Novel Geometric Methods for Semiprime 
Factorization,” co-authored by Robert Edward Grant, Co-Founder and CEO, 
Crown Sterling, and Talal Ghannam PhD., Physicist and Number Theorist. 
The paper includes four different geometric and arithmetic methods for 
public key (semiprime) factorization and one of the methods titled, “The 
Reciprocal Factoring Method” includes an analysis of reciprocal values 
of public keys and their embedded private keys (prime factors) found 
within their period decimal extensions.

“Today’s decryptions demonstrate the vulnerabilities associated with the 
current encryption paradigm,” said Grant. “We have clearly demonstrated 
the problem which also extends to larger keys.”

In March of 2019, Grant identified the first Infinite Prime Number 
prediction pattern where the discovery was published on www.arXiv.org 
titled: “Accurate and Infinite Prime Number Prediction from Novel 
Quasi-Prime Analytical Methodology.” The paper was also co-authored by 
Ghannam.
