  • Personalized medicine software vulnerability uncovered July 2, 2019
    A weakness in one common open source software for genomic analysis left DNA-based medical diagnostics vulnerable to cyberattacks. Researchers identified the weakness and notified the software developers, who issued a patch to fix the problem. The issue has also been fixed in the latest release of the software, and no attack from this vulnerability is […]
  • Researchers teleport information within a diamond June 28, 2019
    Researchers have teleported quantum information securely within the confines of a diamond. The study has big implications for quantum information technology — the future of how sensitive information is shared and stored.
  • Building a bridge to the quantum world June 26, 2019
    Entanglement is one of the main principles of quantum mechanics. Physicists have found a way to use a mechanical oscillator to produce entangled radiation. This method might prove extremely useful when it comes to connecting quantum computers.
  • Discovery of a 'holy grail' with the invention of universal computer memory June 20, 2019
    A new type of computer memory to solve the digital technology energy crisis has been invented and patented by scientists. The device is the realization of the decades long search for a 'Universal Memory' to replace the $100 billion market for Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) and flash drives. It promises to transform daily life […]
  • Hackproofing smart meters June 6, 2019
    Cybersecurity researchers have developed an automated program aimed at foiling smart meter hacking and boosting security in the smart grid.
  • 'Time-travel' feature added to drives to fight ransomware attacks May 29, 2019
    One of the latest cyber threats involves hackers encrypting user files and then charging 'ransom' to get them back. In a new paper, researchers examine how to use the commodity storage devices already in a computer to save the files without having to pay the ransom.
  • Secure metropolitan quantum networks move a step closer May 29, 2019
    Successful new field tests of a continuous-variable quantum key distribution (CV-QKD) system over commercial fiber networks could pave the way to its use in metropolitan areas. That is the key achievement from a team of scientists, which demonstrates CV-QKD transmission over commercial deployed fiber link with a distance of 50 kilometers.
  • Secure metropolitan quantum networks move a step closer May 29, 2019
    Successful new field tests of a continuous-variable quantum key distribution (CV-QKD) system over commercial fiber networks could pave the way to its use in metropolitan areas.
  • Fearful customers sensitive to size and scope of a data breach while angry customers are not May 16, 2019
    Customers who feel afraid in the wake of a data breach care more about the size and scope of the breach than do angry customers, according to new research.
  • New all-fiber device simplifies free-space based quantum key distribution May 6, 2019
    Researchers have developed a simple and stable device to generate the quantum states necessary for quantum key distribution. The device could make it more practical to develop a global data network that uses this very secure method of encryption to protect everything from credit card transactions to texts.
