DARPA takes a step towards ‘holy grail of encryption’

The US Defense Department is looking at what could be considered the “ holy grail of data encryption, ” which would close a loophole that would allow hackers to access sensitive information while it is being processed.

In the modern encryption, a well-defined set of calculations, known as an algorithm, encrypts data so that it is no longer readable. Those who have access to the data are given a series of numbers called a key. This is the code that you can use to decode that data again.
