28 Sep Scientists Create Solution to End-to-End Encryption Problem
Computer scientists from the universities of Luxembourg, Birmingham, and Oxford have come up with a solution for a privacy gap in end-to-end encryption.
Dr. Jiangshan Yu, Professor Mark Ryan, and Professor Cas Cremers revealed that they have come up with DECIM (Detecting Endpoint Compromise in Messaging) in which the devices have to certify encryption keys to a tamper-proof public ledger. Any kind of interception by an attacker will leave evidence, thus alerting the user to take action.
Dr. Yu said that even if the field of end-to-end encryption isn’t completely bulletproof, DECIM should be able to add an extra layer of security in favor of users.
