The age is a fast-developing field in which to advance the operational soldier, sensors, weapons and networking technologies all rely on a secure computing to perform some of the most advanced combat tasks. Even though many of the elements of this scenario already exist, in various forms, the technology is progressing rapidly, to the point where almost all of the combat systems and cyber-reliant.
The soldier-worn computers will instantly connect to provide information, drone feeds, the enemy of the tracking data, among other things. Computers and sensors are already built into the soldier uniform, and is ergonomically designed to accompany forces in the battle for this particular purpose.
This gives a certain duality, or paradox, is of great significance for the future of the war; and the increase of computing power, an AI-enabled systems and advanced processing speeds, a promise of unprecedented benefits for combat operations, but at the same time, a greater reliance on computer networks is required advanced “hardening” and security-based technologies. The vulnerability for the individual systems are able to increase all of the technology that were connected to a central computer for a network, because an attacker would have to have broad access to a wide range of systems, the first attempts at hacking will be met with a measure of success.
Soldier-wearable computers, and embedded sensors, night-vision goggles and wireless communication links require a sophisticated level of security to be able to fight the battle. A whole platform of integrated systems to failure, in the case of a “node” may be compromised or disturbed.
THE ARMY SETS SIGHTS ON NEW FUEL CELL TECHNOLOGY
With these concerns in mind, a lot of US military and industry innovators working on cutting edge light-weight encryption technology designed to secure computer systems, and embedded networks on the edge of the planet.
For example, a newly patented technology from a company called Encoded Sensors is the development of an encryption technique, which is designed to massively improve the safety and efficiency of the forward operating cyber-reliant combat systems”. With the emerging technology, according to the developers, connect the pre-programmed computer chip in the hardware itself, without the need to rely on software for encoding. The so-called Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technology, a quarter-sized chip is not managed as a typical encryption programs that make use of the software and the Computer Processing Unit (CPU) of the control.
“Is that the software for the control of a computer chip, these FPGA chips themselves, and to control the hardware,” by Brian Penny, Chief Technology Officer of the company, will be Encrypted with the Sensors, said a Warrior.
The idea, he added, is for the insertion of any of the information is much more likely to “cut points” in which to insert the data in large chunks on a particular segment interval. This is to ensure the security of the encryption, which makes it much more difficult to detect or decode it, and also massively increase the efficiency.

“It’s a knife in the binary words, and the places of which any of the data within the cut-in point. We are able to encode in real time in a highly efficient manner, in military communications. It does not eat up a lot of battery life or processing time,” She said.
When it comes to the dismounted infantry operations, as reduced by the computer to process, and an increase in efficiency will result in less weight, easy to transport and technology. On the basis of not having to rely on the software to the new encryption methods, you can create the connection with multiple devices through a single, central hub. Instead of having multiple devices, you only need a single access point,” She said.
She explained that the encryption can be made more effective if, as he said, the “random” data is inserted among the ‘ones’ and ‘ zeroes.”
“We have to send a fake data, so it’s hard to tell if the actual beginning or at the end of the message. It’s much more difficult to break into. We are removing a layer of potential security vulnerabilities,” She said.
HOW THE AI CHANGES ATTACK MISSIONS FOR THE US FIGHTERS AND BOMBERS
The coded Sensor in its attempts to limit the issues that may be associated with the standard methods of encryption that make use of the larger “chunks” of data, and reliance on a mathematical formula.
“A sensor is of no use unless you are using the data to update quickly. What we do is not based on any maths, but the actual physical nature of the ones and zeros to be moved by means of a binary stream of data,” Encoded in the Sensor’s CEO, Pat Hull, told the Warrior. … “It is not algebraic.”
Hull explained that all of their techniques rely on the technology can be used to vary the length of the word, and the streams, and will often add extra words, characters, concepts, and symbols, among other things.
“The difference with us is that we have to work on a binary level, as well as the data goes through the chip. We will be randomly adding to a one or a zero,” Hull said.

With the use of a non-mathematical techniques for encryption, it can have significant security benefits, having regard to the rate at which they are mathematically based computer programs, have been able to keep up with the advanced algebraic algorithms, and encryption to be broken.
In this fast-growing, vulnerability is the focus of a the company essay, called ” baseline requirements For Government and Military Encryption Algorithms.”
The essay also makes the point that, mathematically, the methods are based on encryption might turn out to be easier to keep them on track and hack), having regard to the extent to which computers are more and more tracks, and to decode the mathematical basis of the algorithm formula. Encryption is designed to make sure that there are no unencrypted information, and exit the encryption engine,” the essay states. (Michael T. Kurdziel, Ph. D., And John J. Fitton).
“In the first line of defense against proprietary systems, cryptanalysis techniques, in order to ensure that the algorithm is designed and implemented in such a way that there will be no unencrypted information to the encryption engine. … as a result of the opponent’s level, it should be assumed that all aspects of the design, is compromised, and the adversary has become an expert in the communication equipment as well as the algorithm design,” the essay states.

The goal of the advanced encryption of the essay, it is in order to make sure that the “no-signal, associated with the unencrypted information on the device. Not functional ones, it would have to exist, which makes it possible for unencrypted information to be retrieved once it is entered on the device,” the essay states.
In view of this objective, it seems logical to think that adding more frequent “cut-points” at which to insert random bits of information that can make it more difficult for potentially insecure data to the “exit” of the apparatus or on the transmission.
The coded sensors and are now preparing for the lab demonstration of the technology, and I started prototyping. As part of this process, the third party validation.
Trunk, and She hopes to use their technology as a potential solution for the protection of the power grid, and to maintain the encoding is able to withstand quantum computing attacks.

These encryption technologies, the developers say, it can be applied to a digital system and to the radio networks, operating systems, and even a drone video feeds.
It seems clear to me that some of these proprietary FPGA coding, you can achieve this, it will need to be upgraded to keep up with the rest of the time, given the speed of technical developments continue to be available to the opponents.

“Intellectual property rights, or a strategic military information should be protected for a few years, and, therefore, requires the use of an encryption solution that would be enduring, as against the resources that are available to the adversary, over the same time span,” Harris’s essay states”.
