Blurry Box Cryptography: Collaborative Research Produces Revolutionary Encryption Method
A collaborative research effort between the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the FZI Research Center, and Wibu-Systems resulted in the invention of the revolutionary Blurry Box encryption technology and the first prize for the 5th high profile German IT Security Award. Since then, the strength of Blurry Box encryption method was validated when more than 300 hackers were unable to crack the encryption scheme in a global hacking contest. We are now pleased that Blurry Box has been integrated into our standard CodeMeter Protection Suite, providing our customers with the ultimate in software protection.
In this interview, Joern Mueller-Quade, Director FZI and Professor KIT, provides a brief explanation of the theory behind Blurry Box technology and how the research and corporate partners worked together to develop a high-value software protection solution for the benefit of the global software industry. Oliver Winzenried, CEO and founder of Wibu-Systems, follows with a glimpse into Wibu-Systems’ future collaborative research efforts.
