How-to — Stealing Decryption Key from Air-Gapped Computer in Another Room

How-to — Stealing Decryption Key from Air-Gapped Computer in Another Room
Feb 16, 2016
Air-gapped computers that are believed to be the most secure computers on the planet have become a regular target for researchers in recent years. Air-gap computers are one that are isolated from the Internet or any other computers that are connected to the Internet or external network, so hackers can't remotely access their contents. But you need to think again before calling them ' Safe .' A team of security researchers from Tel Aviv University and Technion have discovered a new method to steal sensitive data from a target air-gapped computer located in another room. The team is the same group of researchers who had experimented a number of different methods to extract data from a computer. Last year, the team demonstrated how to extract secret decryption keys from computers using just a radio receiver and a piece of pita bread. In 2014, the team devised a special digitizer wristband that had the ability to extract the cryptographic key used to secu

Patent Troll — 66 Big Companies Sued For Using HTTPS Encryption
Dec 02, 2015
Are you Using HTTPS on your Website to securely encrypt traffic? Well, we'll see you in the court. At least, that's what CryptoPeak is saying to all big brands that utilize HTTPS on their web servers. BIG Brands Sued for Using HTTPS: 'Patent Troll' Texas-based company CryptoPeak Solutions LLC has filed 66 lawsuits against many big businesses in the US, claiming they have illegally used its patented encryption method – Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) – on their HTTPS websites. Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) is a key exchange algorithm that is most widely used on websites secured with Transport Layer Security (TLS) to determine what symmetric keys are used during a session. Encryption is on the rise after Edward Snowden made the world aware of government's global surveillance programs. Today, many big tech and online services are using encryption to: Protect the data transmitted to/from visitor to domain Lessen the risk of hacking

Unseen 4096-Bit Encrypted Email, Chat and File Sharing Service to counter NSA Spying
Feb 10, 2014
With the beginning of a new week, we always came across a new revelation of surveillance programs run by the U.S. Government. A Recent NYT Report disclosed that how whistleblower Edward Snowden downloaded 1.7 million classified files which are revealing a number of secret spying projects that are being executed by NSA. The only lesson we have learned, is about taking our PRIVACY very seriously.  To Communicate using electronic media, we need to explore something which can make the conversation more secure and private. The only point where my search ends is to 'Encrypt the message' to be sent with a robust encryption technique which might provide at least a handy balance of security and convenience. Recently, it was reported that most widely adopted encryption technique RSA had a backdoor for the NSA . So 'Privacy' becomes a question to all of us and what technology we should trust upon. We have various sets of options to choose encryption e.g. Advanced Encryp
