CNET: Quantum computers could crack today’s encrypted messages. That’s a problem

Quantum computers, if they mature enough, will be able to crack much of today’s encryption. That’ll lay bare private communications, company data and military secrets. Today’s quantum computers are too rudimentary to do so. But data surreptitiously gathered now could still be sensitive when more powerful quantum computers come online in a few years. The computing …

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 monetizing data lakes will require applying ‘attribute-based’ access rules to encryption

We’ve barely scratched the surface of applying artificial intelligence and advanced data analytics to the raw data collecting in these gargantuan cloud-storage structures erected by Amazon, Microsoft and Google. But it’s coming, in the form of driverless cars, climate-restoring infrastructure and next-gen healthcare technology. In order to get there, one big technical hurdle must be …

Quantum Computing Report: NTT Research to Collaborate with the Tokyo Institute of Technology

Although quantum computers based upon the gate-based approach may get more of the publicity, we feel that one shouldn’t ignore the potential usefulness of other approaches including quantum annealing and Coherent Ising Machines (CIM) that can also take advantage of quantum mechanical phenomena to solve computational problems, particularly in the combinatorial optimization area. We recently covered …
