The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has ruled that laws requiring crippled encryption and extensive data retention violate the European Convention on Human Rights – a decision that may derail European data surveillance legislation known as Chat Control.

The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) says that “better than 80% of all electronic system failures that are attributed to power anomalies are actually the result of electrical wiring or grounding errors or are generated by other loads within the customer’s facility.”

With research making considerable progress in designing quantum computers, it is time to consider the scenario that usable quantum computing will become a reality in the future. In this post, we discuss the testbed that we are setting up to empirically evaluate the impact of quantum-safe cryptography algorithms on DNSSEC.

Late last year, Congress extended Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and, in doing so, secured the nation’s warrantless surveillance powers until April 2024. With that month fast approaching, House Republicans have unveiled a new package to reauthorize those same powers, within limits.

The justification for HPE buying Juniper may be a mundane, economy-of-scale play or a move to gain Juniper’s AI networking technology. Or there may be a vision for something more ambitious.

The Russian launch of a satellite, with nuclear power and the likely ability to disable satellites, underscores how satellites are quite vulnerable to both natural and manmade ruin.

The Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) – a precursor project for the full Square Kilometre Array – has started work on techniques to help it cope with increased satellite traffic.

Russia, China and other U.S. adversaries are using the newest wave of artificial intelligence tools to improve their hacking abilities and find new targets for online espionage, according to a report Wednesday from Microsoft and its close business partner OpenAI.

The Domain Name System (DNS) is an essential protocol in the architecture of todayメs Internet. It routinely translates domain names into IP addresses and also often handles a multitude of invalid queries.

Lumen Technologies in the last year has doubled down on enterprise, launching its first network-as-a-service offering, the ExaSwitch interconnection platform, among other services.

Cybersecurity researchers have identified two authentication bypass flaws in open-source Wi-Fi software found in Android, Linux, and ChromeOS devices that could trick users into joining a malicious clone of a legitimate network or allow an attacker to join a trusted network without a password.
