QKD uses a photon's polarization and spin to verify an unobserved key transmission.
NIST's revised guidance for Smart Grid cybersecurity reflects changes in power grid technology, which will put a lot of personal information on the grid.
Battelle has implemented the first quantum-key distribution system for production use in the United States, but NIST researchers remain skeptical about moving it from the lab to large-scale use.
Kyocera’s proprietary Smart Sonic technology transmits sounds via the air and through body tissue -- mitigating background noise and traveling through ear plugs.
With NSF-backed funding, researchers will create energy-efficient optical network -– with silicon photonic switches –- to handle massive amounts of data.
D-Wave's Eric Ladizinsky explains how "we are harvesting the parallel worlds to solve problems in this one."
The Army Research Lab and Purdue University develop a process that would let soldiers repair damaged parts on aircraft and ground vehicles on the spot.
Researchers from Georgia Tech demonstrate a prototype tool, ExecScent, that learns a network's normal traffic patterns to spot the command and control traffic from infected hosts. In live tests it identified dozens of new C&C domains and discovered hundreds of infected computers.
The Savannah River National Lab’s prototype hardware, designed in collaboration with NSA, uses Suite B cryptography for a system that could be adapted for other uses.
The moves to cloud computing and shared databases are among the factors driving e-authentication.
Updated specifications from NIST for the PIV card now include an option for iris scans in addition to fingerprint authentication and the ability to do on-card matching of fingerprints.
The agency is selecting sites for UAV tests that could eventually open up the airways, but for now there are two paths to getting authorization for unmanned flights.
