Quantum key distribution technology: Secure computing for the 'Everyman'
The largest information technology agreement ever signed by Los Alamos National Laboratory brings the potential for truly secure data encryption to the marketplace after nearly 20 years of development at ...
The quest for true randomness and uncrackable codes
Quantum cryptography is said to be uncrackable. It will stay safe, but only if true randomness, the generation and use of intrinsically random numbers, can be achieved.
Geneva scientists focus on phone cameras for random number generation
NIST removes cryptography algorithm from random number generator recommendations
Following a public comment period and review, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has removed a cryptographic algorithm from its draft guidance on random number generators. Before implementing the change, ...
Experiment opens the door to multi-party quantum communication (Update)
In the world of quantum science, Alice and Bob have been talking to one another for years. Charlie joined the conversation a few years ago, but now by enforcing the space-like separation of the three parties, ...
Researchers report on hardware Trojans that are undetectable
Bell Labs researchers build camera with no lens
Weighing trailers on the road
Heavy goods vehicles on Norwegian roads will soon be checked and weighed automatically – while on the road. Advanced sensors installed in the road surface, combined with number plate recognition systems, ...
Cambridge team exposes EMV card vulnerabilities
NIST proposes update to digital signature standard
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has announced proposed changes to a standard that specifies how to implement digital signatures, which can be used to ensure the integrity of electronic documents, ...
Fastest random number generator: Sounds of silence proving a hit
(Phys.org) -- Researchers at The Australian National University have developed the fastest random number generator in the world by listening to the 'sounds of silence'.
Flaw found in securing online transactions
Researchers on Wednesday revealed a flaw in the way data is scrambled to protect the privacy of online banking, shopping and other kinds of sensitive exchanges.
Researchers roll Einstein's dice: Developing a quantum random number generator
(PhysOrg.com) -- Quantum mechanics implies that uncertainty in experimental measurements are an inherent part of nature – an idea that Albert Einstein disparagingly characterized as “rolling dice”. ...
Quarks 'swing' to the tones of random numbers
At the Large Hadron Collider at CERN protons crash into each other at incredibly high energies in order to 'smash' the protons and to study the elementary particles of nature - including quarks. Quarks are ...
