Sniffing on the WiFi, you notice an ElGamal encrypted message. Are you able to compute it?

I tried brute-forcing r < 2^32, but no match.
Am I missing something?

Hey madness,

the used r is definitely in the range (0, 2^32). But there are significantly faster methods than brute-force. ;)

If you still struggle with this challenge, you can write me a PM with your approach and I'll take a look.

Greetings, BB

Admins would like me to tell what happened. It turns out that I had miscopied one of the numbers from the PDF file. Once that was corrected, I tried a faster method (not brute-forcing) and found the correct exponent.

why is delta smaller than beta?

Hey vinay27,

i've moved your question to the corresponding challenge thread. ;)

To answer your question:
The value of gamma can be smaller than beta since gamma is an element in Z_p as well — and therefore gamma = m * beta^r mod p.
