Thwarting the cleverest attackers

Image Credit: Photos.com --- Lee Rannals for RedOrbit.com Researchers have developed a new technique that will be able to keep hackers from stealing a computer's secrets. Hackers have become an increasing problem for keeping personal information secure from cybertheft, but Shafi Goldwasser, the RSA Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT, and her former student Guy Rothblum believe they have a solution for the growing threat. Goldwasser says the technique could protect devices that use propriety algorithms, so hackers will be unable to reverse-engineer the machines. The researchers' technique obscures the computational details of a program, whether it is running on a personal computer or a server.  The system converts a given computation into a sequence of smaller computational models, according to an MIT statement. Data that is fed into the first module is encrypted, and at no point during the module's execution is it decrypted.  The encrypted output of the first module is fed into th
