>> SPEEDIOE - SUPER FAST CYPHER
A big topic in IoT is security of information exchange - here is a novel
Most IoT devices are using very low-powered components which typically
means very little processing power and limited memory to perform complex
operations like encryption. The idea behind Speedioe is to provide a
simple cypher that could be used even in the most restricted environments.
Gideon Samid states:
- Speedioe™ operates in speeds which are several order of magnitude
faster than the fastest mainstay ciphers today. because Speedioe is not
based on complexity mixing between the key and the plain-text, but rather
on the preset complexity of the key, which when it is constructed in
hardware is thousand times faster than what we are accustomed to.
While no source code or indication of the how the algorithm works - I
am curious to see how it would compare to some more well known simple
cyphers like RC4
and its variants, which I have mutated in the past for my own purposes
(DRM in my games back on Palm OS).
I am actually attending the
EIT ICT Idea Challenge
during the week and I will definitely like to pick his brains to find out more
as he is also presenting at the event.
