Because IoT devices are optimized for low power consumption and affordability, many have less than optimal computing resources. The good news is there are several options for using cryptography to make it more difficult for hackers to highjack your living room webcam, video doorbell or car.
MORE THAN 15,000 SSL certificates have been issued to PayPal phishing sites, according to research from The SSL Store.
The discussion about how law enforcement or government intelligence agencies might rapidly decode information someone else wants to keep secret is – or should be – shifting. One commonly proposed approach, introducing what is called a “backdoor” to the encryption algorithm itself, is now widely recognized as too risky to be worth pursuing any further.
The scholarly and research community, the technology industry and Congress appear to be in agreement that weakening the encryption that in part enables information security – even if done in the name of public safety or national security – is a bad idea. Backdoors could be catastrophic, jeopardizing the security of billions of devices and critical communications.
What comes next? Surely police and spy agencies will still want, or even need, information stored by criminals in encrypted forms. Without a backdoor, how might they get access to data that may help them solve – or even prevent – a crime?
Speaking publicly, and claiming that she has been pushed by politicians across Europe, Jourová said that she will outline "three or four options" that range from voluntary agreements by business to strict legislation.
The EC´s goal is to provide the police with a "swift and reliable" way to discover what users of encrypted apps have been communicating with others.
Future quantum computers may have the processing power and algorithms to crack them.
Nathan Hamlin, instructor and director of the WSU Math Learning Center, is helping to prepare for this eventuality.
He is the author of a new paper in the Open Journal of Discrete Mathematics that explains how a code he wrote for a doctoral thesis, the Generalized Knapsack Code, could thwart hackers armed with next generation quantum computers.
One in five websites (21 per cent) are still using certificates signed with the vulnerable SHA-1 hash algorithm, according to a new survey.
Reliance on the obsolete hashing technology leaves companies at greater risk of security breaches and compliance problems, certificate management firm Venafi warns.
Venafi´s latest study shows there has been improvement since November 2016, when a third (35 per cent) of websites were still using SHA-1.
There´s good news for anyone worried about the rise of quantum computers and the risk that they could be used to crack modern, public-key crypto systems, thus imperiling the security of much of today´s data, both in transit and at rest. Leading cryptographers advise: Don´t panic, and above all, don´t do anything about it right now.
„We have broken SHA-1 in practice,“ wrote a group of researchers from the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica research center in Amsterdam and Google on Feb. 23. A research paper from CWI´s Marc Stevens and Pierre Karpman and Google´s Ange Albertini, Elie Bursztein and Yarik Markov says the group´s so-called „SHAttered attack“ can be used to compromise anything that relies on SHA-1.
