Do you have screenshots of your crypto platform?

We basically gave up on going to startup events for now. I know It’s not good for marketing or when you look for equity investment. We just got tired of trying to explain what a “platform” is good for. Everyone expects a flashy demo or screenshot of your app.

Does Amazon Want To Control All Encryption Keys?

Public cloud providers have absolute control over our data, applications, everything we do on their cloud platform. Independent key management lowers users’ risk exposure and as such is in the interest of cloud providers. Well, Amazon AWS has different thoughts.

VPN for Companies – “Bring Your Own Device” Made Easy

We pushed hard to extend our Private Spaces and make them a great choice for companies to connect roaming users (and their own devices, while providing a high-level of security for BYOD policies).

Unbreakable Encryption with Secure Hardware and Geopolitics

From supercomputers to IoT – processors (or chips) are everywhere. Computer chips protecting our privacy and security would first travel the world to get designed, fabricated, and personalized. Even if we had an unbreakable encryption algorithm, it may be defeated by its manufacturing. Let’s exploit superpowers and their influence to create a practical unbreakable encryption.

Think OpenVPN is easy? Think again as it’s worth it

We decided for OpenVPN to build secure connections to our Private Spaces. We braced for difficulties, but that was only the beginning. The point of this post is that integration testing does make a difference. And that OpenVPN is a very nice tool!

Private Space Gateway launched

The Gateway is our first Private Space – like a VPN (if you know it), but for sharing and co-operation. We have been building Private Spaces for the last three months – a one-click secure cloud space for companies, teams, or home users.

EV Certificates – Value for Money? Incl. Troy Hunt Q&A

I have come across Troy Hunt’s article yesterday about getting an EV certificate. His initial assumption is that EV certificate actually proves something, unlike many other seals of “security”. But is it really worth spending $80+/year?

Transaction Security with Slow Clock and Counter – How to Conjure Up Entropy

I love cryptography. It’s an abstract science, where I can define a problem, come up with a solution and prove it (eventually). I also like applying cryptography as it involves real world (users, limitations of computers, …), which messes everything up and turns pure mathematics into a fun game. Continue reading Transaction Security with Slow Clock and Counter – How to Conjure Up Entropy

Self-driving Cyber Security – Step 1: Professional PKI

Many companies drive their computer systems without wearing seatbelts, even though they know and constantly witness they risk being injured by cyber crashes. There are simple economic reasons for this. It is not the unavailability of cyber “seat belts”, but the difficulty of putting them in. Enigma Bridge technology gives customers self-driving cyber-security for safe navigation through the cyberspace and protection of its payload.

Do Not Trust Experts – from Brexit to Internet

I was a researcher, I believed that we were independent, un-biased, the true source of knowledge (and I still do). What I didn’t appreciate at the time was that researchers were terrible in defining borders of their expertise and saying “I don’t know”.
