Hacked systems, data breaches, and hostage malware are regularly topics of headlines, comprising stories of hospital, department store, bank, and government data leaking into unsavory hands. But now a group of engineers has an encryption key method that cannot be cloned and cannot be reverse-engineered, defending data even as computers become nimbler and faster.
“Presently, encryption is conducted with math algorithms that are dubbed as one-way features,” claimed assistant professor at Penn State for engineering mechanics and science, Saptarshi Das, to the media in an interview. “These are simple to make in one direction, but very hard to do in the opposite way.”
An instance of this is multiplying 2 prime digits. Assuming the initial digits are extremely big, reverse engineering from the outcome turns out to be very computer-resource heavy and time consuming.
“On the other hand, now that quantum computing is on the horizon and devices are turning out to be very powerful, employing encryption that depends on its efficiency because it is monumentally time consuming to solve will not fly anymore,” Das claimed to the media.
On a related note, an expected 65% people in India have never upgraded firmware of their router, while 39% have no idea that the firmware for the routers actually exits. This was claimed by a research carried out by Avast, the digital security provider. The study was performed out in July 2018 by Avast and polled more than 1,044 users in India.
The study indicates at how cyber assaults can take benefit of user’s lack of understanding regarding the security of router. As per the survey, just 23% of people in India sign-in into web administration of router. It claims that only 44% of people in India have altered the login credentials of web administrative interface for their router.
