Donut Theory Cracks Security Algorithm

A theory involving donuts has helped crack a proposed government security algorithm. It's nothing to do with distracting security guards, Better Call Saul-style, but rather advanced mathematics. Government agencies and others involved in security ... are constantly looking for new ways to encrypt data, with quantum computing seen as a potentially major threat. Most encryption methods used at the moment rely on length and complexity to deter brute force cracking techniques that simply try every possible decryption key. The idea is that it should take so many tries (on average) to get the right ... (view more)
