Cyber Defense and Post Quantum Bi-Semmetric Encryption

The integrated cybersecurity solution proposed within will include external and internal communication encryption using Terranova Defense Solutions Bi-Symmetric Encryption software. Bi-Symmetric encryption is defined as a post-quantum encryption handshake protocol designed specifically for encrypting data transmitted via radio. as well as other forms of communications. The Cyber Security solution uses challenge and counter challenge codes to exchange public keys using private keys. This ensures listening parties will be unable to ascertain the contents of the encrypted data and/or to send unwanted commands designed to interrupt on-boards activities or systems.

Our Encryption Solutions are defined as a post-quantum encryption algorithm designed to encrypt and decrypt data transmitted via the Bi-Symmetric handshake. Our Encryption technologies are existing developed software algorithms. The solution is ideal for all unmanned as well as manned vehicle communication to prevent cyber-attacks from all computers, including supercomputers and upcoming quantum computers designed by our cyber defense division which is a group of Canadian companies working and developing the highest level of quantum encryption in the world today.

1 Prediction
2021 Predictions for Cybersecurity

Date : November 08, 2020

My prediction into the World of Cyber Security in 2021, will span into Cyber Warfare and the shutting down of defensive systems during a Civil Technology War. The world will be politically challenged with opposing persons who use technology for intelligence, surveillance and for attacking people. Drones will create this stage, it will be through this field that terrorism will bring new conflicts [...] in the world today. We are seeing drones themselves are becoming smaller, quieter, enhancing in video and audio recording quality, as well as other applications as the technology evolves.
