My main intention with PrimeGrid is to help bolster cybersecurity. Does anyone have any recommendations for which subprojects are most likely to discover primes useful for encryption? Thanks!

I think the primes primegrid are searching for are way bigger than what's used in (RSA?) cryptography.

Not only that, any primes found at PrimeGrid are useless for encryption. They are vulnerable to dictionary attack.
