True random numbers are here — what that means for data centers

Security News - 19 min 22 sek zpět
The Entropy Engine can deliver 350 Mbps of true random numbers—enough to give a data center enough random data to dramatically improve all cryptographic processes

For many decades, the term “random numbers” meant “pseudo-random numbers” to anyone who thought much about the issue and understood that computers simply were not equipped to produce anything that was truly random.

Manufacturers did what they could, grabbing some signals from the likes of mouse movement, keyboard activity, system interrupts, and packet collisions just to get a modest sampling of random data to improve the security of their cryptographic processes.
v And the bad guys worked at breaking the encryption.
We used longer keys and better algorithms.

And the bad guys kept at it. And life went on.

But something recently changed all that.

Alice and Bob: A History Of The World’s Most Famous Couple

Security News - 19 min 22 sek zpět
Alice and Bob are the world’s most famous cryptographic couple. Since their invention in 1978, they have at once been called “inseparable,” and have been the subject of numerous divorces, travels, and torments. In the ensuing years, other characters have joined their cryptographic family. There´s Eve, the passive and submissive eavesdropper, Mallory the malicious attacker, and Trent, trusted by all, just to name a few.

Let´s harden Internet crypto so quantum computers can´t crack it

Security News - 19 min 22 sek zpět
Draft blends asymmetric public/private key encryption and one-time pad analogs.
In case someone manages to make a general purpose quantum computer one day, a group of IETF authors have put forward a proposal to harden Internet key exchange.

While only an “informational” document at this stage, what the authors describe is how to extend Internet Key Exchange v2 (RFC 7296*, IKEv2) to support a quantum-safe key exchange.

Post-Quantum RSA

Security News - 19 min 22 sek zpět
Daniel J. Bernstein, Nadia Heninger, Paul Lou, and Luke Valenta: Post-Quantum RSA

Abstract: This paper proposes RSA parameters for which (1) key generation, encryption, decryption, signing, and verification are feasible on today´s computers while (2) all known attacks are infeasible, even assuming highly scalable quantum computers. As part of the performance analysis, this paper introduces a new algorithm to generate a batch of primes. As part of the attack analysis, this paper introduces a new quantum factorization algorithm that is often much faster than Shor´s algorithm and much faster than pre-quantum factorization algorithms. Initial pqRSA implementation results are provided.

The Ultimate Guide to SSL Inspection- Uncover Threats in SSL Traffic

Security News - 19 min 22 sek zpět
Encrypted traffic accounts for a large and growing percentage of all network traffic. While the adoption of SSL, and its successor, Transport Layer Security (TLS), should be cause for celebration – as encryption improves confidentiality and message integrity – it also puts organizations at risk. This is because hackers can leverage encryption to conceal their exploits from security devices that do not inspect SSL traffic.

How serious is the threat? According to a recent Gartner survey, “less than 20% of organizations with a firewall, an intrusion prevention system (IPS) or a unified threat management (UTM) appliance decrypt inbound or outbound SSL traffic.”1 This means that hackers can evade over 80% of companies’ network defenses simply by tunneling attacks in encrypted traffic.

To stop cyber attacks, organizations must gain insight into encrypted data, and to do this, they need a dedicated security platform that can decrypt inbound and outbound SSL traffic.

Officials from the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand will discuss next month plans to force tech companies to break encryption on their products.

The so-called Five Eyes nations have a long-standing agreement to gather and share intelligence from across the globe. They will meet in Canada with a focus on how to prevent \"terrorists and organized criminals\" from \"operating with impunity ungoverned digital spaces online,\" according to Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull.\"
