We describe a cell processor implementation of Pollard's rho method to solve discrete logarithms in groups of elliptic curves over prime fields. The implementation was used on a cluster of PlayStation 3 game consoles to set a new record. We present in detail the underlying single instruction multiple data modular arithmetic.
