Google presents algorithm that protects passkeys from quantum attacks
Google has developed a Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) algorithm against quantum computing attacks on FIDO2 encryption. It's known as a "hybrid PQC" algorithm.
The FIDO2 encryption standard is just about the most secure way to log in without a password. It uses a strong form of built-in two-fact... Read more
SandboxAQ acquires Cryptosense to enhance post-quantum cryptography
SanboxAQ is acquiring Cryptosense to enhance the cybersecurity and encryption capabilities of its post-quantum cryptography solution.
SandboxAQ is a quantum computing developer that was founded at Alphabet and became an independent company last March. Only six months into its operations, Sandbox... Read more
Researcher uses 379-year-old algorithm to crack crypto keys
The method used was first introduced by a French mathematician in the 1600's.
Cryptographic keys generated with older software now owned by technology company Rambus are weak enough to be broken instantly using commodity hardware, according to a report in Ars Technica. The revelation was made by... Read more
New encryption chip promises ‘unhackable communication’
A new cryptography chip is designed based on chaos theory and should offer perfect secrecy with unbreakable security. At the moment, the chip has only been developed as a prototype, but it already works.
The new chip has been developed by the Center for Unconventional Processes of Science togeth... Read more
IBM comes up with quantum-safe cryptography services
IBM plans to introduce cryptographic encryption in 2020 that is also secure for quantum computers. The company also wants to make quantum-safe algorithms available through the open source community.
Since IBM wants to make a profit with its quantum computers in a few years' time, it is useful i... Read more
