Tigerspike is that committed to driving security and efficiencies they are challenging the cryptographic and mathematical community to hack the cutting-edge encryption technology. Tigerspike’s patented quantum resistant mobile encryption technology, Karacell, will transform how organisations and individuals can keep their mobile data safe on personal technology devices.

We are committed to providing ground-breaking, robust technology for our clients so they can be assured that their confidential data is secure” states Dr Stuart Christmas, Head of Future Technologies at Tigerspike.

Government communications, credit card details, medical records and devices are increasingly proven to be accessible to ‘hackers’. Recently passed Jack Barnaby, was a renowned hacker who continued to highlight the weaknesses of technology devices such as heart implants and urged companies to get ‘meaningful security'. If anyone can hack car braking systems and pace makers we need a new type of security encryption - and we think Tigerspike's patented Karacell is it.

Karacell is the new quantum-resistant mobile encryption technology, which greatly improves mobile security, speed and has much lower power requirements making it ideal for small medical devices (and mobile of course). It's new but its highly secure - even after 5,000 compiles of the competition encryption source code to date, the prize money of US$10,000 remains unclaimed and Tigerspike want to give the community a 2nd chance to see if they can crack it.

“Over the past 10 years we have been developing technologies that provide security for online and mobile solutions. We are committed to providing ground-breaking, robust technology for our clients so they can be assured that their confidential data is secure.” states Dr Stuart Christmas, Head of Future Technologies at Tigerspike.

Karacell’s key differentiating features include:

  •     Very fast bitwise parallel operation
  •     Extremely low latency so ideal for live streaming voice and video traffic
  •     Speed and efficiently scales exponentially with technology advancements
  •     Resistant to attack by Quantum Computers
  •     Strength does not depend on key length (beyond brute-force attacks) or on the file being encrypted (no feedback modes)
  •     Efficient in both hardware and software
  •     Very small footprint (small executable code)
  •     Based on a known and well-studied unsolved mathematical problem
  •     Allows for military-strength encryption with keys of memorable length
  •     Includes built-in secure cryptographic hash more robust than industry standard SHA systems

“Karacell has gone through independent rigorous testing to prove it is faster and more efficient that existing standards and we have resolved the concern on mobile power drain.” adds Russell Leidich, Chief Information Scientist.

After ongoing performance optimisations and security enhancements Tigerspike continues to build our enterprise portfolio of secure Karacell products and is committed to developing technologies that help overcome organisations’ concerns.
