Combining StoreSafe with nShield as a Service offers customers a turn-key, non-disruptive and application-transparent data-at-rest encryption solution with a powerful centralized key management system. This integrated offering is available for major public cloud providers, enabling customers to move their digital assets and business-sensitive applications to the cloud in a secure and cost effective manner and meet data privacy compliance mandates.

ALERT: Disabling support for 3DES Cipher Suites in TLS connections to eliminate a vulnerability - Watson


UPDATE: This post has been updated on July 12, 2017. The disabling of 3DES cipher suites was originally scheduled to occur on July 24, 2017. This post has been updated to reflect the current scheduled date of Aug. 7, 2017. The support for 3DES cipher suites in TLS connections made to Watson Developer Cloud services is being disabled on Aug. 7, 2017 to eliminate a vulnerability. When making HTTPS connections using the TLS protocol, a cipher suite defines various aspects of how the client and server communicate securely.

Cracking Codes with Python


Cracking Codes with Python teaches complete beginners how to program in the Python programming language. The book features the source code to several ciphers and hacking programs for these ciphers. The programs include the Caesar cipher, transposition cipher, simple substitution cipher, multiplicative & affine ciphers, Vigenere cipher, and hacking programs for each of these ciphers. The final chapters cover the modern RSA cipher and public key cryptography.

Device Authority and nCipher Security announce success in delivering trust for medical IoT


Device Authority's KeyScaler platform integrates with nCipher's nShield hardware security modules (HSMs) to provide high-assurance device authentication, managed end-to-end encryption, and certificate provisioning for IoT devices, ideal for medical, industrial, and other smart connected products. KeyScaler delivers a scalable, device-based authentication and authorization to establish a strong root of trust and identity assurance for medical IoT devices. "Every day we are seeing how technology in healthcare is helping improve the care that patients receive. However, we have also seen that the healthcare industry is regularly under threat from cybercriminals. Our partnership with Device Authority has enabled us to solve device authentication and data security challenges that are hindering IoT deployments. By creating a hardened system for issuing and managing device credentials and the keys that are essential to creating a root of trust, we enhance patient safety and allow organizations to confidently deploy business critical IoT projects. This has led to our first joint customer win with a large medical device manufacturer securing surgical robot systems," said Cindy Provin, CEO, nCipher Security.
