World War II encryption for your e-mail

Want to protect your sensitive emails? You might want to consider going retro -- and exploiting an unbreakable WWII-style cipher.

The Vernam cipher was developed in 1917 by AT&T engineer Gilbert Vernam and U.S. Army Captain Joseph Mauborgne, and was used to protect relayed data in WWII.

Captain Mauborgne strengthened the cipher using genuinely random keys that don’t repeat. And Singaporean company Rune Information Security Corp. has leveraged his work in an e-mail encryption system known as Deadbolt.

Your chamber of secrets

It is very easy to lose sensitive data without even realising it—from a software developer sneaking out gigabytes of valuable source code on his iPod to an executive's wireless-enabled laptop being sniffed at the local coffee shop, loss of data can be critical to executives or businesses. The amount of data on devices (mobile, laptop, etc) and on web accounts (emails, social networking profiles, etc) needs a protective layer of security. Here’s how to stay on guard:

Data Security: Will banks ever adopt a data centric model?

Carol Wheatcroft | The Asian Banker | 12APR2012

Adopting a data centric model for data security would require bank s to classify and encrypt all sensitive data. Can this idea gain ground?

Traditionally financial institutions have placed the highest emphasis on avoiding data security breaches especially beyond the perimeter of the four walls of the bank. Known as the perimeter based approach, the stress has been to ensure that no matter how data is accessed – by mobile devices such as laptops, by customers accessing the bank by logging into accounts or, through the use of cloud computing technologies - data is transported in a secure fashion. In other words the security focus has been the transport of data from the perimeter to the destination by relying on encryption technologies such as Internet protocol security (IPsec). But this still leaves the data inside the organisation unencrypted and prone to breach.

WWII-like message encryption now available for e-mail security

A Singapore-based company offers an e-mail encryption system based on the Verman cipher, or one-time pad, which was invented in 1917 and used by spies in the Second World War; the Vernam cipher is unbreakable because it produces completely random cipher-text that secures data so that even the most powerful super computers can not break the encryption when it is used properly
