The Goal is Crypto-Agility
In just a few years, quantum computers could be ready for practical use. This is a risk scenario that must be taken seriously when considering current cryptographic methods. The effective protection of digital infrastructures against the advanced computing capabilities of quantum chips is only possible if IT security keeps pace with this development.
New QuaSiModO Research Project Launched
In the QuaSiModO (Quantum-Safe VPN Modules and Operation Modes) research project, new quantum-resistant algorithms are being investigated, tested and implemented in VPN standards and VPN implementations. genua is the project coordinator and is represented in the project by Stefan-Lukas Gazdag. In the interview below, the cryptography expert answers questions about the research content.
Firewall Cluster Protects RTL II
Provocation through unconventional formats is part of the concept of the successful TV channel, but also requires protective measures. This is where RTL II relies on proven solutions: Two firewall systems genugate, linked into a highly available cluster, protect the network of the TV channel against attacks from the Internet.
