1) Quantum cryptographic key
distribution: Secret communications where a sender and receiver can safely share a private key by taking advantage of quantum mechanics.
Data is sent through the transistors, where it's scrambled into gibberish for anyone without a cryptographic key
To generate a cryptographic key
, the initiating party uses a procedure like the one described in the sidebar (below), starting with the transmission of a stream of photons.
has announced that it has developed a technology that converts biometric data, like palm veins, into a cryptographic key
The M-Pin System achieves this by turning any HTML5 browser into a strong authentication client that authenticates to the open-source M-Pin Server, which only stores one leak-proof cryptographic key
, replacing the username / password database.
The Diffie-Hellman key agreement mechanism is a well-understood and widely implemented public key technique that facilitates cost-effective cryptographic key
agreement across modern distributed electronic networks such as the Internet.
IBM contributed to the specification by providing cryptographic key
management capabilities, and the Open Group recently adopted it as a standard.
Below is an example of how a cryptographic key
is stored and retrieved in zTrustee:
While other systems of this kind are already emerging from other firms and researchers, Fujitsu's is innovative that its use of randomized numbers for encryption means that the process is performed against the randomized numbers, instead of the encryption biometric data itself, when a cryptographic key
is being decrypted.
SecureOMS is the first comprehensive cryptographic key
management solution for network-connected devices in the global financial services, retail and enterprise markets.
Also, the new releases feature SSL-based secure access, cryptographic key
storage and transaction acceleration.
1 million of funding to develop a centralized cryptographic key
management system to protect the nation's electric power grids from cyber attacks.
