Nearly five years after announcing a competition to develop a new cryptographic hash algorithm, the National Institute of Standards and Technology announces a winner that was designed by a team of European scientists.
Citadel, one of the latest Zeus trojan variants, is a prime example of how hackers are pairing sophistication with practical conveniences. RSA's Etay Maor explains why that combination is so threatening.
Thales e-Security is pleased to present the 2011 Encryption Trends Study (United States) conducted by the Ponemon Institute. This study reveals how U.S. organizations are using encryption to protect their sensitive data and how the U.S. compares itself with other countries like Germany, United Kingdom, Brazil and...
LinkedIn's failure to comply with long standing industry standard encryption protocols jeopardized its users' PII, and diminished the value of the services, the class action federal lawsuit filed in northern California says.
Gartner's Peter Firstbrook, to illustrate the vulnerability of IT systems, cites research that pegs at about 400 days the average time a targeted virus remains undetected on a computer. And, he says, that doesn't speak highly of the current offerings from security vendors.
A recent research paper that raised questions about the efficacy of RSA public-private key cryptography shouldn't alarm IT security practitioners, says Eugene Spafford of Purdue University. Here's why.
IT security practitioners who employ the RSA public-private key cryptography needn't lose sleep about its efficacy, despite new research that raises questions on how it creates large prime numbers to generate secret keys, IT security authority Gene Spafford says.
RSA Chief Technologist Sam Curry defends the company's approach to public-key cryptography after researchers suggest a flaw in its encryption algorithm, contending the problem exists elsewhere in the security chain.
