Recently, Boneh, Dunworth, and Lipton (1996) described the potential use of molecular computation in attacking the United States Data Encryption Standard (DES), Here, we provide a description of such an attack using the sticker model of molecular computation. Our analysis suggests that such an attack might be mounted on a tabletop machine using approximately a gram of DNA and might succeed even in the presence of a large number of errors.
