FBI’s iPhone hack limited to the iPhone 5c, earlier devices

Posted on 10/30 23:02 in Shows | 0

While the FBI may have found a workaround in this case, the solution is an imperfect one, according to FBI Director James Comey.” The fact that the technique doesn’t work on devices later than the iPhone 5c suggests Apple’s implementation of ARM’s TrustZone technology (Apple calls its specific flavor Secure Enclave) is blocking the FBI’s hacking attempts on more modern devices.

NIST report says we urgently need more work in post-quantum cryptography

Posted on 05/10 16:46 in Shows | 0

The study of how to keep encrypting messages even in the face of exponentially increased computing power is called “post-quantum cryptography,” or “quantum-resistant cryptography,” and the reality is that nobody knows quite how urgent it really is.NIST is planning a post-quantum competition to try to stimulate more work in the area.

Google is testing a Chrome browser that adds post-quantum encryption

Posted on 07/12 17:58 in Shows | 0

In a truly forward-thinking move, Google is getting serious about the effort to future-proof internet security: user’s of the tech giant’s test-phase browser, Chrome Canary, can start testing a so-called post-quantum cryptographic technology aimed at making users immune from next-next-generation cryptographic attacks.Enter, post-quantum cryptography and, in the case of this new experiment from Google, a software solution called CECPQ1.
