The secret behind the Coin is that it is powered by a 128-bit encryption for all storage and communication.
Get to know E2E (end to end) encryption, says Dan Auerbach, a staff technologist at the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
Forget about encryption—your ISP could require the key as condition of using its network.
Websites should probably revoke and re-issue their encryption keys as well.
Bloomberg even reported that the NSA did know and had been exploiting the mistake in encryption.
Snowden contacted Poitras in mid-January 2013 after failing to connect with Greenwald due to his lack of encryption.
With the Assange movie, there are sequences like the [Vincente] Minnelli-like visual explorations of an encryption system.
In November 2013, well before U.S. bombs started falling, “ISIS did launch a Web-based encryption tool,” Ahlberg said.
And then Glenn finally got on encryption, came on a plane to New York, and off we went.
How many congressmen could even describe how encryption works?
The process of encoding a message so that it can be read only by the sender and the intended recipient. Encryption systems often use two keys, a public key, available to anyone, and a private key that allows only the recipient to decode the message. (See also cryptography.)
Any procedure used in cryptography to convert plaintext into ciphertext (encrypted message) in order to prevent any but the intended recipient from reading that data.
Schematically, there are two classes of encryption primitives: public-key cryptography and private-key cryptography; they are generally used complementarily. Public-key encryption algorithms include RSA; private-key algorithms include the obsolescent Data Encryption Standard, the Advanced Encryption Standard, as well as RC4.
The Unix command crypt performs a weak form of encryption. Stronger encryption programs include Pretty Good Privacy and the GNU Privacy Guard.
Other closely related aspects of cryptograph include message digests.
