United States – 01-24-2020 (PRDistribution.com) — Morristown, N.J., Jan. 24, 2020—A new invention improves message security and user authentication for the Internet and Financial Transactions by customizing current cryptographic methods. The US Patent and Trademark Office has issued US Patent 10,515,567 on several novel aspects of the invention. Simple customization of existing and tested cryptographic methods in encryption, digital signatures and authentication provides exponentially better security against cryptographic attacks and provides ultra-private data exchange. Such customization was previously technically and theoretically impossible.
The improvement is an application of a novel number theoretical theorem in computer operations. The theorem is called the Finite Lab-Transform (FLT). Explanation of the FLT can be found here. A toy example applying the FLT to Diffie-Hellman Key Exchange can be found here.
Existing cryptographic methods include the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), authentication and digital signature schemes based on the Standard Hashing Algorithms (SHA), methods based on Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC), Diffie-Hellman key exchange and RSA encryption. They are acknowledged by cyber-security experts to be among the most secure.
“However,” explains Peter Lablans, the named inventor on the patent, “weaknesses of these methods are well known and documented. As attackers get smarter and their computers more powerful, a strengthening of the existing methods is needed to keep security at a high level. An example is the length of a keyword in RSA. That length is now recommended to be at least 4096 bits, while previously 2048 bits were considered secure. This trend, with quantum computing looming, will not stop.”
Peter Lablans further explains: ”The number of customizations based on our invention is enormous. For AES alone, possible modifications are greater than 10 to the power 100. This renders brute force attacks impractical and even outside the realm of quantum computer attacks. You may call this Crazy-Secure Customization.”
On the question who should consider this invention, Lablans answers “Any organization that is concerned about security of data transmitted over channels that may be under attack. However, three user groups especially benefit:
-The first group includes users of high value transactions that require an extra-level of security, not only now but also against future attacks;
-The second group includes low processing power devices, such as devices in the Internet-of-Things (IoT) that should have the security as offered for smartphones, but are limited by lack of processor power;
-The third group includes autonomous and mission critical devices, such as self-driving cars. “
Peter adds: “Right now novel and promising cryptographic primitives are appearing, such as lattice based methods. These methods may require high power computers and most of them are still untested. And doubts about underlying security keep popping up. Our invention is a good immediate step to improve security dramatically.”
The invention is available for licensing. A hands-on seminar, using software examples, may be requested. Interested parties should contact [email protected].
