How Nanotechnology Will Disrupt Cybersecurity

DarkReading

Bernard Brode

It sometimes feels like nanotechnology is a solution looking for a problem. Though there has been much speculation about the potential applications of nanotechnology, many benefits the technology remain quite underdeveloped. One exception is in the area of cybersecurity.

While I don't expect nanotech attacks or nanotech-based security strategies to appear this year, one of the major cybersecurity lessons the industry is learning from the COVID-19 pandemic is that the threat landscape, and the way organizations respond to it, is more dynamic than ever. Here are three areas where nanotechnology is likely to influence cybersecurity, and my best guess at how quickly we are likely to see tangible nanotech solutions.

Nanotech for Cryptography
The first major way in which nanotechnology is contributing to cybersecurity is...
