Out of Chaos, Perfection
Chip prototype designed using chaos theory promises ‘perfect secrecy’
Excerpts and salient points ~
+ A new cryptography chip prototype designed using chaos theory is aimed at delivering “perfect secrecy” with unbreakable security.
“We have successfully reimagined an entirely new way to develop technology, working in concert with the inherent principles operating in the laws of physics and randomness,” Aluizio M. Cruz, both co-inventor of the technology and co-founder of CUP Sciences, said in a statement. “Because of this, our technologies scale exponentially, rather than linearly, creating breakthroughs in efficiencies of energy and cost.”
+ The working chip-based prototype was designed by the Center for Unconventional Processes of Sciences in conjunction with the University of St. Andrews and King Abdullah University of Science and Technology. It uses standard CMOS-compatible silicon chips.
+ The chips are said to transmit information on a public optical network, using the technological maturity, speed and scalability of classic optical communications to deliver a pathway toward implementing perfect-secrecy cryptography at a global scale with what the creators describe as contained costs. New chips and promises of advanced cryptography are not new, but where this one stands out is that the prototype was developed using chaos theory and the second law of thermodynamics to transmit and measure signals at the speed of light.
+ Chaos theory is the science of predicting the behavior of inherently unpredictable systems — to expect the unexpected, so to speak. The “perfect secrecy” chip uses keys that are changed for each communication, sending information in a onetime key that can never be intercepted by a hacker and the key is never the same twice.
