Amazon is quietly doubling down on cryptographic security – TechCrunch

#artificialintelligence

Now it appears that one of the leading companies in cloud services is looking for more ways to double down and fight the latter. Amazon's AWS has been working on a range of new cryptographic and AI-based tools to help manage the security around cloud-based enterprise services, and it currently has over 130 vacancies for engineers with cryptography skills to help build and run it all. One significant part of the work has been within a division of AWS called the Automated Reasoning Group, which focuses on identifying security issues and developing new tools to fix them for AWS and its customers based on automated reasoning, a branch of artificial intelligence that covers both computer science and mathematical logic and is aimed at helping computers automatically reason completely or nearly completely. In recent times, Amazon has registered two new trademarks, Quivela and SideTrail, both of which have connections to ARG. Classified in its patent application as "computer software for cryptographic protocol specification and verification," Quivela also has a Github repository within AWS Labs' profile that describes it as a "prototype tool for proving the security of cryptographic protocols," developed by the AWS Automated Reasoning Group.


Major Considerations when moving to a SaaS Model

Moving your legacy application to SaaS is not easy as you think; you have to take various aspects into consideration. And, with the proliferation of cloud solutions, making choices has become more difficult. Making wrong choices would leave an adverse affect on performance and reputation and makes you take a downturn in the competitive marketplace.


Will Artificial Intelligence (AI) Stop Hacker Attacks? - Stay Safe Online

#artificialintelligence

For decades, the police and drivers with lead feet have engaged in a war of radars and radar detectors. Every time police radar technology improves, so do radar detectors to outsmart it. The same is true with cybersecurity. In turn, the technology that hackers use is also improved. It makes little sense to continue this way.

AI and machine learning could goose home security and monitoring sector--report

#artificialintelligence

Do-it-yourself security systems will cause some shifts in the residential security market as more than two million broadband homes will have a self-monitored system by year's end. According to research by Parks Associates, 23% of the self-monitored systems are fee-based with an average cost this year of $9 per month while 22% also include home control. By 2024, the average monthly fees will slide down to $8.50 while 34% will have home control add-on services. Home security systems seemed cutting edge when they were first introduced, but now the market is flooded with options that are available from the likes of ADT, AT&T, Ring, Comcast, and even chain hardware stores. In order to better cash-in on home security services, Parks said the industry needs to find new drivers for the homes that currently don't have such services.
