alertCrypto researcher discovered a new ancient bug in Diffie-Hellman crytography. The problem is thatservers that support 512-key “export-grade” Diffie-Hellman (DH) can be forced to downgrade a connection to that weak level. The server – and therefore the client – will both still believe they’re using stronger keys such as 768-bit or 1024-bit.

Matthew Green – one of the researcher – has hosted a site discussing what’s being called „#Logjam„,, with a detailed paper – Imperfect Forward Secrecy: How Diffie-Hellman Fails in Practice (PDF) – that explain the bug in a academic way.
