  • Very nice challenge. Took me a bit of time to realize that I was doing things right just was missing one extra step to recover everything.

    If what I said helped you you can always send some respects ^^

  • Will the decrypt function never work?

    My result: a really "broken decryptor".

  • Fun challenge. Thx r4j! Forces you to understand MODE_CTR...(not a spoiler)

  • hi could someone give me a hint in DM?

  • Cant seem to break this, the randomness after each encryption makes it seem impossible to crack

    Are you sure it is totally random?

  • Just solved the challenge, but it requires a long time and lots of requests to get flag. Is that normal, or that is intended?

  • I cannot yet discover how to get hid of the otp... Is it necessary to try to discover a prediction on the random bytes sequence?

  • @mysteriousP Read carefully the otp... generation and understand all steps of the generation. Fukurou and indirect maple3142 gives already very good hints.

  • Wohay! Finally i got it...
    But, i wanted to discuss the method, because i think i made it in a naive way...
    I'm thinking: if i could use some concurrency i should get better result?
