With the steadily growing spread of containerization now and in the future, it becomes increasingly necessary to properly understand the internals and potential security threats resulting from aspects like kernel vulnerabilities, container misconfigurations and wrong use. This also includes optimizing the process of deploying and distributing containers and their environments to increase the productivity and efficiency, which directly impacts the cost factor. There are many ways containerization can be implemented - this blog post series focusses on Linux namespaces and control groups. These features are currently being used by LXC and Docker.
In this article I am going to highlight some of the issues concerning the current state of post quantum cryptography. This article is written for readers who want a high level overview and are not much concerned with technical details.
The first part explains how security of cryptographic algorithms is determined in theory. Next, the notion of post quantum cryptography is introduced. Eventually, selected aspects if one decides to use post quantum cryptography are highlighted.
SCHUTZWERK has long-lasting connections to Hochschule Furtwangen, Hochschule Aalen and Ulm University in order to cooperate in research and teaching topics with security focus. This includes lectures, security CTFs, master and bachelor thesis as well as research projects (e.g., the ongoing BMBF project SecForCARs in which a recent master thesis was conducted together with Ulm University). Furthermore SCHUTZWERK regularly conducts one-day hands-on events, so-called Capture-the-flags (CTF), in which students can test their cybersecurity skills in form of a practical competition (e.
