An offline Geo-Encryption System “Padma”: A CRF Application

Updated: Mar 22, 2019

In the case of enterprises, research facilities or data centres, sometimes it is necessary a particular piece of information should not leave the facility. The information can be in the form of a document, a file, a part of a code, software, a storage device or a laptop. Most organisations offer laptops or storage devices to their employees. Though in most cases, it is not allowed to carry these devices out of the facility, but employees tend to take it with them. A daily security check at exits is difficult, time-consuming & sometimes results in trust issues. Therefore, organisations comprise on these things.

Bruce Schnier, an internationally renowned security technologist, in his book “Secrets & Lies, Digital Security in a Network World” mentions on computer security: “the mathematics is impeccable, the computers are vincible, the networks are lousy, and the people are abysmal.” It is right in every aspect. Algorithms such as AES, Blowfish, Twofish are too robust and rarely breached using a brute force. Attackers mostly attack protocols, use insider access, exploit human weakness, or obtain information through social engineering.

The System “Padma” is based on CRF (Configurable Radio Fencing), an Indoor Positioning & Tracking technology developed by Vacus. It allows data to be encrypted for a specific location. It provides reliable protection against brute force attacks.

The system “Padma” is patented by Vacus & is currently in the growth stage.
