Project Details


Information-theoretic secure communications via caching. This project aims to address the cybersecurity problem of securing telecommunication networks to prevent data leakage. Current widely-adopted data-encryption approaches to secure communications will be broken with large-scale quantum computers, and existing information-theoretic approaches rely on the channel quality of the network. To circumvent these risks, this project proposes a new information security approach using information cached at devices to camouflage data. The project will future-proof secure communication systems against large-scale quantum computers, which threaten current encryption approaches. This should ensure that data transmitted over communication networks can never be revealed to interceptors or hackers, even in public WiFi.
