Our research is testing a novel way of securing data communications using information cached at devices to camouflage data.

This encryption technique prevents data from being obtained by eavesdroppers present in the communication medium. The method is robust, even against eavesdroppers with unlimited computing power.

Competitive advantage

  • Mathematically provably secure approach to data communications
  • Technique to secure communications against the advancement of quantum computing
  • Data encryption/decryption method that is low in computational complexity
  • Multiple virtual secure networks comprising different members and different levels of security, regardless of physical networks the devices are connected to
