This is Deep Crack, the EFF's hardware DES cracker. The six boxes in a row house the custom hardware ASICs; the Linux box on top of chassis #2 is the console that controls them. Sitting next to the console is John Gilmore of the EFF, and someone else whose name eludes me (and whose name tag is incoveniently hiding behind the "Cracking DES" book).
