    Hi everyone im doing my university dissertation on building a game with a focus on security and was wondering if some devs can fill out this short servey hosted on survey monkey its 8 questions all anonymous and is just questions like what sort of encryption is used etc so shouldn't be too hard or intrusive :)
    Its only set for 100 people and the aim of this is to get an idea on what sort of security the general game developers use for there project and the platforms they use
    (sorry if i posted this in wrong spot)

    Hope your dissertation won't be graded on spelling and grammar...

    I seriously hope no one selects MD5 on that survey. It is insecure due to having very low computational requirements with a single graphics card easily producing billions of candidate passwords per second. Ideally you want encryption techniques that are both very hard to parallelize on GPU/FPGA hardware and computationally expensive.

    If you're curious about the benchmark numbers, here is the MD5 recovery tool. The statistics are at the end of the page.

    Wow. Insert my normal rant about proper survey design and training. You have gained very little meaningful data from this survey.

    Good luck with this.
