Whitebox Attacks… on Hardware?

Whitebox Attacks… on Hardware?

In our very first Cloakable blog post, we discussed why whitebox cryptography is so important when developing software that needs to keep data and keys secure.  Specifically, we discussed how software is an open book, with the ability to view and alter the internals...

Cryptographic Agility

Cryptographic Agility

Are you ready for the next big thing in cryptography? Actually, it’s a trick question. Ask 5 different people what the “next big thing” will be and you’ll get at least 5 different answers. Whatever lies ahead, the real question is, are you ready for change? Read more about Cryptographic agility, or cryptoagility…

More and more security companies are including “white-box cryptography” in their product offerings. This is more than buzzword compliance; it’s a recognition that white-box attacks are real, and that the implementation of a cryptographic algorithm is as important as the algorithm itself.
