Connect the circled dude in (1) with the event going on in (2). (3) is just a clue…

PS: Apologies for the late post. Looks like both of us ended up with slow/sketchy net connections for today…

Answer:
Leonard Adleman, the A in RSA (1) was the mathematical consultant for the hacker movie Sneakers (3), and even wrote most of the script/dialogue for one particular scene (2). Ref: http://www.usc.edu/dept/molecular-science/fm-sneakers.htm

    Leonard Adleman . 2 and 3 look like movie scenes and hence is it safe to assume that the link is he being mathematical consultant for the movie Sneakers ? :P

    The event ->factoring ?

    Circled guys is Leo Adelman (one of the RSAs). Pic 2 is a still from Sneakers for which he was a mathematical consultant

    Leonard Adleman (of RSA) was a mathematical consultant for the film Sneakers (saw it on a flight last month!)


  5. 1-Addleman of RSA fame
    2- ?

    1.Len Adleman
    2.In the movie Sneakers,Prof. Janek Gunter comes up with a method to factor large prime nos.
    3.scene from Sneakers.
    connect->Adleman was consulted by the director Phil Robinson. In the movie,Gunter says “It would be a breakthrough of Gaussian proportions” which besides other dialogues,was suggested by Adlemann.

    Len Aldeman
    RSA algorithm?
    A shot from Sneakers for which Aldeman was a consultant.
