News broke overnight that scientists have developed a new system with high-speed encryption properties that drives quantum computers to create theoretically hack-proof forms of data encryption, said report. The novel system is capable of creating and distributing encryption codes at megabit-per-second rates, which is 5 to 10 times faster than existing methods and on par with current internet speeds when running several systems in parallel. Ofer Maor, Director of Enterprise Solutions at Synopsys commented below.

“We often encounter these new “Hack Proof” promises. While the technology does indeed sound interesting, touting a “Hack Proof” title is dangerous and somewhat presumptuous. We have seen time and again claims for new “Hack Proof” technology, that was shortly after hacked. Only technologies that withstood a long series of hack attempts by leading encryption experts, hackers and governments, can have a reasonable claim at that, and even that is not always the case. Moreover, even if the theory is indeed hack proof, we have seen than In many cases, when this is implemented to become a usable commercial product, implementation flaws introduce new security weaknesses that can later be taken advantage of, ending in an embarrassing compromise to the “Unbreakable” theme.”
