Cryptography in an all encrypted world

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Ensuring that communication is secure, including the ability to encrypt sensitive traffic, has always been a fundamental pillar of the telecom industry. Users expect their right to privacy to be respected, and operators expect to be able to protect themselves and their customers from various kinds of attacks. But the world is changing. Encryption technologies are advancing, regulations are changing, criminals are becoming highly tech savvy, and security awareness has become a popular conversation topic. So, in light of new threats and security demands, security protocols need a shake-up.
