The Last Watchdog: MY TAKE – Agile cryptography is coming, now that ‘attribute-based encryption’ is ready for prime time

All of the technical innovation cybersecurity vendors are churning out to deal with ever-expanding cyber risks, at the end of the day, come down to protecting encrypted data. But cryptography historically has been anything but agile; major advances require years, if not decades, of inspired theoretical research. Now comes something called attribute-based encryption, or ABE, a new approach to encrypting data that holds the potential to infuse agility into how encryption gets done online…
