Security Firm Permanent Privacy has launched the world's first practical data encryption system that is apparently absolutely unbreakable. And it is offering a $1,000,000 challenge to anyone who can crack it.
The technology behind Permanent Privacy has been verified by Peter Schweitzer, one of Harvard's top cryptanalysts, and decrypters and hackers are welcomed to test Permanent Privacy; the firm is offering $1,000,000 to anyone who can decipher a sample of ciphertext.
Peter White, Managing Director of Permanent Privacy, added : "The world of cryptography shuns and disparages outsiders, but Permanent Privacy is the real thing. You can now send emails and store data with 100% security. Even the Pentagon can't read your secrets if they don't have the keys".
Permanent Privacy will appeal to a diverse user base like Individuals who are concerned about files stored on their computers, or worried that their private emails can be intercepted and read or Organisations that need to be absolutely certain that they are not the next media embarrassment due to sensitive data being lost or stolen.
From time to time a debate has raged over the desire of some governments to stifle the use of strong encryption. The launch of Permanent Privacy is likely to re-kindle this debate.
