comment Brute Force on 3DES with Reduced Keyspace and Unknown IV
The key is 16 bytes, I know the first 10 (a ten letter word) and the next six are numbers (as in the ascii val of the digits 0-9). I'm basically brute forcing from WORDWORDWO000000 to WORDWORDWO999999 but not finding anything.... I wasn't sure if my logic using the first 8 bytes of the ciphertext as the IV was correct or not.
