@GeorgeBailey Bottleneck is CPU at the moment. They are using a user agent header that resembles a real browser. I appreciate your help and am happy to answer any questions.

All I have at this point is apache access logs. The next part is determining a solution to prevent it from happening, which will have to be a software solution since it's in Amazon's cloud.

comment is there better email, file, disk encryption than PGP?
@LucasKauffman Faster supercomputer (as per Wikipedia): 10.51 Pentaflops = 10.51 x 1015 Flops [Flops = Floating point operations per second]. Even though the numbers are still high, computing is now in the exaflop range, at least from what is public. That being said, this assumes the math is correct, and it assumes the NSA haven't developed optimizations to do the brute force, which could drastically affect those calculations. It also assumes Symantec doesn't backdoor their software.

@LucasKauffman Do you think they'd spend $2 billion on a new datacenter if it couldn't?

I guess I should have been more specific. Has it been fruitful, worthwhile to have one?
