A protocol based on "discrete logarithms", deemed as one of the candidates for the Internets future security systems, was decrypted by EPFL researchers. Allegedly tamper-proof, it could only stand up to the school machines decryption attempts for two hours.
Unassailable encryption algorithm cracked by EPFL researchers in two hours A protocol based on “discrete logarithms”, deemed as one of the candidates for the Internet’s future security systems, was decrypted by EPFL researchers. Allegedly tamper-proof, it could only stand up to the school machines’ decryption attempts for two hours. Only two hours!
Experts on privacy and Internet security have blasted the National Security Agency over reports it has secretly been working with the British government to crack encryption technology that billions of Internet users rely upon to keep their electronic messages and confidential data secure.
Here's a scary thought - you may soon have to worry about security on your smartphone just as you do on your PC. Up to this point, cell phone security has almost been an afterthought, at least in the public's eye, but that's about to change. Two researchers from Trustwave -- Nicholas J.
This article shortly describes simple steps on how to crack a wireless WEP key using AIR Crack software. This can be done by sniffing a wireless network, capturing encrypted packets and running appropriate encryption cracking program in attempt to decrypt captured data. WEP ( Wired Equivalent Privacy ) is quite easy to crack as it uses only one key to encrypt all traffic.
First of all, I'm using phone with latest LG firmware without any carrier branding. I'm entering PIN which is necessary to see encryption option on any Android phone. Then going to Phone Settings -> Security ...and nothing. :confused: There is no Encryption option on list.
Following security researchers publishing a way to match Snapchat usernames to phone numbers, Snapchat has published a skimpy statement making the hack sound impractical and noting “We recently added additional counter-measures and continue to make improvements to combat spam and abuse.”
Earlier this week ZDNet published an in-depth write-up of how white-hat Gibson Security researchers
