TII’s Cryptography Research Center Launches CLAASP Cryptanalysis Tool

Published

on

Analyzing symmetric cipher algorithms just became significantly easier! The Technology Innovation Institute’s (TII) Cryptography Research Center (CRC) has announced the release of a cryptanalysis tool called CLAASP – an acronym for a Cryptographic Library for the Automated Analysis of Symmetric Primitives.

Built upon the computer algebraic system SageMath, CLAASP took over four years to develop and leverages Python3 to automate the design analysis of symmetric primitives such as block ciphers, cryptographic permutations, hash functions, and stream ciphers by employing a cryptanalytic approach.

As the era of quantum computing becomes a reality, cryptographic libraries have quickly grown in importance to become critical assets for organizations ranging from governments to businesses and even individual researchers. CLAASP’s unparalleled maturity, generality, and completeness make it a crucial tool to ensure design sovereignty for organizations of their own symmetric ciphers.

Dr Najwa Aaraj, Chief Researcher TII’s Cryptography Research Center and Autonomous Robotics Researcher Center, said, “While CLAASP may not completely replace manual analysis, it still helps to mitigate the risks and decrease the time and effort associated with carrying it out – allowing cryptanalysts to focus on comparing cipher designs and to a lesser extent on implementation issues.

Notably, in a bid to make it widely accessible to the public, CLAASP has been released as an open-source tool and carries a GPLv3 license.

Reolink Launches a 16MP Camera and Dual-Lens Security Camera Lineup at CES 2024

Published

on

Reolink has unveiled a new dual-lens camera lineup at CES 2024. The company showed off a 16 million-pixel security camera, Duo 3 PoE, and more cutting-edge security products and technologies, redefining the future of home and business surveillance. “Devoted to creating the finest security products for consumers and business owners, Reolink is harnessing the latest technology to make homes and offices more secure and comfortable,” says Fabrice Klohoun, Marketing Manager at Reolink. “We invite conference attendees to join us at CES to witness the latest advances in security solutions, including the 16MP images captured by our devices and additional capabilities of Reolink’s product offerings.”

Reolink Duo 3 PoE 16MP Camera
Reolink’s newest addition to its flagship dual-lens lineup, the Duo 3 PoE, innovatively merges two high-resolution lenses into a real-life vision with an enormous 16 million pixels. Users can capture more vivid details than ever before, including wanted or unwanted visitors, license plates,  delivered packages and much more. Boasting an advanced dual-image stitching algorithm, the Reolink Duo 3 PoE camera creates a 180° panoramic view with minimum distortion. Users will experience peace of mind when it comes to property surveillance without missing a single detail.

The most innovative feature of the Duo 3 PoE camera is the built-in Motion Track. By overlaying multiple tracks and positions of people, vehicles, or animals over a certain period into a single picture, users can monitor footage within seconds. This feature removes hurdles like video buffering delays and having to watch multiple footage playback to confirm activity.

Reolink TrackMix Series and Argus Track
Reolink’s hybrid lens TrackMix series provides wide-angle images and target-focused close-ups simultaneously. Together with the auto-tracking function, the TrackMix camera lineup delivers the smoothest surveillance experience for tracking a moving target.

Reolink brings this hybrid dual-lens security technology to a consumer-grade security camera, known as the Reolink Argus Track. This sleek camera incorporates all of the must-have features on the TrackMix cameras: 4K colour images day and night, dual-view display – one for overall and the other for close-up, and 6x hybrid zoom. In addition, it is solar-powered with a 6W solar panel.

Reolink ColorX Series
Reolink is expanding its innovative ColorX true colour night vision technology into more lineups: 4K camera series, Wi-Fi camera series, and PTZ camera series.

Integrating an F1.0 super aperture, an advanced 1/1.8” sensor and HDR function, the new ColorX cameras CX810, CX410W, E1 Outdoor CX capture ultra clear and colourful visuals in extreme darkness, improving nighttime surveillance performance as daylight ones.

Whole-Home Security
High-performing security systems should be full-range and centralized. At CES, Reolink showcased three surveillance solutions for homes and businesses, ranging from wire-free battery solutions and fast Wi-Fi 6 plug-in solutions to solid PoE systems.

All Reolink security camera system solutions embrace a spectrum of advanced features, including 24/7 monitoring, AI-assisted smart detection, instant motion alerts, and more.
