New technologies on the horizon
Aside from the advent of Post-Quantum Cryptography, there are some exciting new technologies arriving in the world of cryptography.
Secure multiparty computation (SPMC) is is a way for a number of parties to work together to solve a problem without revealing the information used in the computation to the other parties.
Zero Knowledge Proofs provide a unique balance of security and anonymity. With the finance and insurance industry’s interest in blockchain ledgers and, more recently, contact-tracing, ZKPs are moving beyond theory and into practice.
At Cryptosense, we have followed several of our customers as they create or upgrade their cryptography inventory. We have seen that in practice, every organization’s cryptography inventory will be a little different, depending on how and where cryptography is used relative to the business-critical functions of the organization. Indeed, successful cryptography inventory projects typically apply a different methodology to different parts of the application estate or infrastructure, in order to prioritize resources to the most important areas.
In this whitepaper, we will discuss the lessons learned from these projects and the best practice approaches that will enable you to guide your own cryptography inventory project.
