Up-Sliding Security to Match Threat Increase
Security Outfits usually serve as a stationary target for sophisticated intruders. RSA, DES, AES, ECC -- the encryption standards of the hour, are based on what hackers have done to date (assumed intractability): emphasizing the aftereffect security patch. It's good for business. Security vendors are called back to upgrade their system time and again. It's bad for the customer -- for the same reason.
ClearBIT Systems has developed a cryptographic paradigm that offers at-will security based solely on the size of the selected secret key. The challenge is to use a larger key, without paying a computational penalty that slows down the process. ClearBIT Systems satisfied this stringent spec, and users of its Daniel Cipher can simply respond to an increased threat by using a larger key. The key can grow up to Shannon Order of Magnitude, at which point, as Claude Shannon proved -- the cipher is theoretically secure, and no amount of computing power, or hackers' smarts will breech its security.
Currency Never Travels Over the Net
Daniel insures that currency never actually travels through the Internet or over wireless networks. Digital cash, in the form of random bits, will be used as the encryption/decryption key. If the payee wants to make sure that the payer makes the payment, he sends him some chosen message (e.g.: "What's the world coming to?") -- encrypted. The payer, decrypts this message using his random bits currency. He then sends back the same message in the open (unencrypted). When the payee receives the unencrypted message, he is assured that the payer disposed of the random bits he was supposed to dispose. Otherwise he could not have decrypted the message. The power of this procedure is that the currency was never exposed to the Internet, only the choice message (encrypted and unencrypted) was going back and forth. The transaction is completed, without exposure of the currency, or any of the consumers personal information, account details, credit card numbers, pins etc.!
Now, you could not conveniently do this using RSA, DES, AES, ECC because they all work on a fixed key size, and they are slow at that. Daniel is fast, and works with any key size, so it can be used for any size transaction.
