Skynet is using a very small list of primes for RSA style encryption purposes. In fact their list is only the size of the smallest odd prime. One of the robots sent a message to three other robots. These are futuristic robots with the ability to use quantum computing and so they don't mind prime factoring huge numbers.You can't do that though. Find out what message the robot sent to his friends. Flag is in flag{} format. https://mega.nz/#!7WZg2I5I!UiyBukv8_IjartojnY86nhN5jsQFKE4tPCEF1lPqsQ8

    A very fun classic RSA challenge! I enjoyed it a lot ^-^

    • Celebrity

      i decrypted c1 but when i try to factorize n2 , n3 there are no factor shown plz help me...

      • IT_Oracle

        All the ciphers decrypt to the same thing (the flag). Maybe you haven't converted the flag to the proper form...? Try using cyberchef. If you have further trouble, follow the reddit link on my profile and leave a post there.

    really not worth 160 points, but overall good problem

  • elliot_pwn

    The list of primes they are using is too small ;)

    4 minutes solve this challenge. Why there is alot primes but first one is the key :D
