PadLock Strengthens and Accelerates Security for Java-based Online & Desktop App

VIA Utilizes the Real-Time Military-Grade Security Integrated Into VIA C7-M, VIA C7 Processors

 VIA Technologies has released the VIA Java Cryptography Service Provider (VIA JCP), an add-on package that enables the Java Runtime Environment used in many common online and desktop applications to offload AES encryption and random number generation to the VIA PadLock Security Engine integrated into all VIA C7-M and VIA C7 processors.

The security of information that is exchanged and stored on notebooks and PCs has become a forefront issue in computing, the company points out. "Hackers intercept online banking, e-trading, peer-to-peer file transfer, VOD, VoIP and even email data transmitted across the Internet and stored locally to steal valuable personal and company identity information," it said in an official statement related to the announcement.

“Java plays a pivotal role in enabling rich, dynamic and secure Internet-based applications, so we believe it is essential to be proactive in developing technologies that enhance the security of our processor platforms,” said Richard Brown (pictured), Vice President of Corporate Marketing, VIA Technologies, Inc. “Enabling the power of VIA PadLock through the VIA implementation of the Java Cryptography Service Provider is another major step towards driving pervasive computer security through making everyday applications safer and faster.”
 
The VIA JCP helps fight this threat by enabling Java-based applications that utilize the Java Cryptography Architecture to benefit from the military-grade protection offered by the VIA PadLock Security Engine with no program modification. Running in the background of Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems, the VIA JCP requires no user interaction or maintenance.

Drawing on the power and strength of VIA PadLock’s hardware cryptography, the VIA JCP can accelerate these AES cipher functions by up to 90 times, enabling real-time encryption of data with low processor utilization, and strengthens the process of private/public key creation through utilizing the unprecedented speed and quality of VIA PadLock’s quantum based random number generators to build an unshakable foundation for security.

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
