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

Encryption agility is going to be essential as we move forward with digital transformation. 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 …

The Last Watchdog: MY TAKE – Why ‘basic research’ is so vital to bringing digital transformation to full fruition

Basic research, also called pure research, is aimed at advancing scientific theories unfettered by commercial interests. Basic research is the foundational theorizing and testing scientists pursue in order to advance their understanding of a phenomenon in the natural world, and, increasingly, in the digital realm. NTT Research opened its doors in Silicon Valley in July …

Some Good (Cryptography) News

Few people know much about cryptography. What the public learns, from headlines and advertisements that often exploit those headlines, is that existing cryptosystems seem to break fairly often. In his latest article for Forbes, NTT Research President and CEO, Kazuhiro Gomi, points to three counter examples of cybersecurity actually tightening: 1) a breakthrough in “indistinguishability …
