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.
There seems to be a lot of talk about security and privacy today. First Apple took shots at Google in their statement about privacy. Then it was revealed that Google would enable device encryption by default in Android L.
