Will quantum computing break the Internet?

Security News - 9 min 49 sek zpět
While the principles of quantum computing are certainly complex, at a high level, the risk from quantum computing can be understood fairly quickly. Unlike a digital computer bit, which can only be a zero or one, a quantum bit, or qubit, can be a zero, one, and everything in between – all at the same time. For those who are not quantum physicists, this can be mind-blowing, but the result is that a quantum computer can offer such a huge speed-up to solving certain problems, that some problems previously thought to be nearly impossible to solve may soon be solved.

EU: No encryption backdoors but, eh, let´s help each other crack that crypto, oui? Ja?

Security News - 9 min 49 sek zpět
The European Commission has proposed that member states help each other break into encrypted devices by sharing expertise around the bloc.

In an attempt to tackle the rise of citizens using encryption and its effects on solving crimes, the commission decided to sidestep the well-worn, and well-ridiculed, path of demanding decryption backdoors in the stuff we all use.

Instead, the plans set out in its antiterrorism measures on Wednesday take a more collegiate approach – by offering member states more support when they actually get their hands on an encrypted device.

Hacknite digitálny podpis Kaliňáka. Firma vypísala odmenu

Security News - 9 min 49 sek zpět
Odmenu 1337 eur v piatok vypísala IT firma Hacktrophy za odhalenie podrobností o elektronickom podpise ministra vnútra Roberta Kaliňáka.
Urobila tak po tom, keď sám minister verejne vyzval k „hacknutiu“ svojho občianskeho preukazu s čipom, ktorý podľa oznámenia vedcov z Brna obsahuje vážne bezpečnostné riziko.

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

Security News - 9 min 49 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.
