Ramat Gan, Israel (PRWEB) November 11, 2009
Gold Line Group Ltd. (http://www.gold-lock.com), a leading provider of military-grade secure mobile communications devices and data encryption, is putting its money and reputation on the line.
Citizens of the world are invited to take their best shot at decrypting a telephone conversation protected by Gold Lock's ultra-secure encryption software. The goal of the contest is to prove that its encryption technology can withstand any attack made by anybody, using any available technology.
The company is hoping the prize money will draw the best hackers, cryptographers, and communications security (COMSEC) specialists the world has to offer. In addition to the prize, the winner will be offered a position on the company's staff.
That's a lot of gold to give away, but Gold Lock CEO Noam Copel is betting he won't be doing that. "I am 100% confident that the $100,000 in gold will not be given away regardless of how many people try to decipher the recording and no matter what their skill levels are," Mr. Copel said in an interview.
"Our encryption software and secure mobile devices are so simple to use that people without any technical skills at all will become expert users within minutes. But when it comes to what happens behind the scenes, those same easy-to-use devices and software use technology so powerful it is licensed by the Israeli Ministry of Defense," Mr. Copel added.
For example, when protecting voice calls, Gold Lock automatically changes the keys multiple times for each call, a feature that makes it virtually impossible to zoom in on a specific set of keys and decrypt it.
As government and private sector employees and citizens face increasing threats from pirates, terrorists, identity thieves, kidnappers, professional and amateur eavesdroppers, and other criminal elements, it is no longer possible to avoid having your voice and data transmissions intercepted unless they are transmitted in a secure manner.
Thousands of customers rely on Gold Lock products to protect their sensitive voice and data communications. The company hopes this unprecedented attempt to focus the world's best communications security talent on defeating their products will show people how easy it is to protect themselves from even the most determined communication security assaults.
"If by some chance it turns out we are wrong and our encryption technology can be broken, we will award the prize and welcome the successful contestant to join our company," Mr. Copel further stated.
