Research on new encryption technology that has the potential to make cyberattacks "computationally impossible" will be presented at the ASIACRYPT 2009 security and cryptology conference in Japan. Paul Morrissey, Nigel Smart, and Bogdan Warinschi from the University of Bristol's Department of Computer Science will demonstrate how the technique can be used to prevent attacks such as denial of service. The approach also provides two-factor authentication that does not overburden users.

The researchers will discuss how to transfer information between databases in a truly encrypted way in a second paper.

Also, researchers from Bristol will present a third paper on the "basic constructions in cryptography," which they argue could be applied to applications such as the Web browser.
