Securing the IoS – the Internet of Sensors

Published January 6, 2016 by SecureRF in Algebraic Eraser, Embedded Systems, Hacks, Internet of Everything, Internet of Things, Sensors, Wireless Sensor Networks

The Internet of Things is talking loud and clear and nearly anyone can listen. Sensors are on almost everything from cars, refrigerators and wearables, to a town’s streetlights, water supply systems and air quality tracking devices. People’s lives are made easier and more efficient with the delivery of helpful data and information in seconds. The same holds true for businesses in almost any industry. Many […]

Cryptanalysis of the Algebraic Eraser Diffie-Hellman key agreement protocol by Ben-Zvi-Blackburn-Tsaban

Published November 17, 2015 by SecureRF in Algebraic Eraser, Authentication, Cryptography, RSA, Security

Analysis of cryptographic methods is a regular event, and it helps to identify areas requiring further research and possible improvement, weak keys or parameters, and in some very rare cases an actual weakness in a method (see SHA-1 research). We encourage reviews and analysis of our methods and make direct requests at conferences we attend throughout the year. On November 13, 2015, a group of […]
