Computer Scientists Develop ‘Mathematical Jigsaw Puzzles’ To Encrypt Software

Software

another random user writes “The claim here is that the encrypted software can be executed, but not reverse-engineered. To quote from the article: ‘UCLA computer science professor Amit Sahai and a team of researchers have designed a system to encrypt software so that it only allows someone to use a program as intended while preventing any deciphering of the code behind it. According to Sahai, previously developed techniques for obfuscation presented only a “speed bump,” forcing an attacker to spend some effort, perhaps a few days, trying to reverse-engineer the software. The new system, he said, puts up an “iron wall,” making it impossible for an adversary to reverse-engineer the software without solving mathematical problems that take hundreds of years to work out on today’s computers — a game-change in the field of cryptography.’”

Google

coolnumbr12 writes “A new partnership between Starbucks and Google hopes to improve the lives of freelance writers around the country. Starting in August, Google plans to make Internet speeds at all 7,000 Starbucks locations in the U.S. 10 times faster than the current AT&T-powered service. For people in a city equipped with Google Fiber, Google says the speed in Starbucks could increase as much as 100 times.”

Ask Slashdot: Is Tech Talent More Important Than Skill?

Programming

snydeq writes “Taming technology is sometimes more art than science, but the difference can sometimes be hard to discern, writes Deep End’s Paul Venezia. ‘You’ve probably come across colleagues who were extremely skilled at their jobs — system administrators who can bend a zsh shell to their every whim, or developers who can write lengthy functions that compile without a whimper the first time. You’ve probably also come across colleagues who were extremely talented — who could instantly visualize a new infrastructure addition and sketch it out to extreme detail on a whiteboard while they assembled it in their head, for example, or who could devise a new, elegant UI without breaking a sweat. The truly gifted among us exhibit both of those traits, but most fall into one category or another. There is a difference between skill and talent. Such is true in many vocations, of course, but IT can present a stark contrast between the two.’”Assuming Venezia is correct, which do you think is more important?

Congress Wants FCC To Auction TV White Spaces

Wireless Networking

GovTechGuy writes “Things don’t look good for Google, Microsoft and other companies hoping to experiment with super WiFi and other technologies in unused TV channels or ‘White spaces’. Both House Republicans and Senate Commerce Chairman Jay Rockefeller are prodding the FCC to sell as much spectrum as possible at next year’s incentive auction, which may not leave much for those hoping to advance the next generation of WiFi technology.”
