A new way of securing software is being developed that would encrypt files and data and use algorithms to create a unique identifier for each piece of data.
The new approach, codenamed DES, was announced by security firm BitDefender and is being proposed by security expert Richard Brown.
DES is a software architecture that would ensure that the encryption algorithm used for data encryption is the same as the encryption key used to encrypt the data.
This means that a single algorithm, called a DES key, would be used to decrypt data, regardless of whether that data was encrypted using AES, RSA, or any other encryption algorithm.
It is possible to generate a DES ciphertext using a number of different algorithms.
However, the way in which these algorithms are used to encode data has been somewhat of a mystery, as they are often implemented as separate modules.
DES was originally developed by the NSA for its Cryptography Group, and is now being proposed as a way to secure encryption software.
Brown said that DES would provide a better way of protecting encryption software because it would not need to be built on top of a common cryptography library, like OpenSSL, and the DES key would be uniquely identifiable.
“We would be able to make this work in a way that we would have to change all of the software on the platform that we are using.
And so we can protect our users,” Brown said.
“It’s a lot easier to protect against attacks than to build the encryption infrastructure yourself.”DES is a different approach to encryption than AES, the cryptographic standard that has been widely used by modern encryption algorithms.
DES encrypts data using a “hash function” called a “DES ring,” which is essentially a set of numbers that are stored in the data, according to Brown.
In a DES ring, each of the numbers in the ring is encrypted using a different encryption algorithm, with each ring having its own unique key.
Brown explained that DES keys could be created on demand by the user and could be used with any software that uses AES.
DES keys would also be encrypted by the operating system itself, meaning they could be read by the users operating system or other software.
“You could actually do a lot of things with DES keys that would make them more useful than a typical encryption key,” Brown explained.
Des can also be used in combination with a “cryptographic hash table,” which in this case would be a set, like a dictionary, of integers that represent encryption keys.
DES could be combined with a hash function and then used to create the DES ring.
“We can create a DES hash table with a DES encryption key and it will produce a DES cryptographically secure key,” he said.
Brown noted that DES encryption could be further improved by using multiple keys, as this could provide even more secure encryption.
“You can take the hash function, and you can make a new one,” he explained.
“And that new hash function can then be used by a different application or another system to encrypt data and then you can use it to decrypt that data.”
DES will also be useful for protecting cryptographic keys that are used in applications like cloud services, which encrypt and decrypt data and data data can be transferred across networks.
“In the cloud, you could encrypt the keys that the cloud service is using, and then in the cloud there is no way that a user can get into the cloud to decrypt the data,” Brown added.
Brown said that the DES algorithm could be applied to encryption for other applications, including video, photo, and music.
“The key to encrypting data is a DES, but the key to decrypting data are different,” he added.
“DES is much better for data.”
According to Brown, DES is being implemented as a free open-source library for security researchers to examine.
He also noted that it would be easy to implement DES into software that doesn’t need encryption.
“That’s where the strength of DES lies,” Brown told me.
“What we’re doing is just making it a public library that anyone can look at and see what is the strength, the weakness, the weaknesses of the DES system.”DES was developed by security group SecureWorks, which Brown said is “a big part of what we do.”
The organization is known for developing software that can protect data from both ransomware and physical attacks.
“SecureWorks’ approach is really about making software as secure as possible,” Brown concluded.
“There is no need to have a secret algorithm for software, or a secret encryption system for software.
This is something that anybody can build and use.”
