Gopher Protocol Commences Implementation of MESH system Encryption System

October 29, 2018 GMT

SAN DIEGO, CA, Oct. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE – Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: GOPH) (“Gopher”), a company specializing in the creation of Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence enabled mobile technologies, including a global platform with both mobile and fixed solutions, commenced the implementation of its MESH system encryption for the NODE and the GATEWAY units.

This is a key feature designed to ensure secure, private, hacking free operation. As Gopher’s MESH system utilizes radio protocol, the transmission can be intercepted or received by an unintended third party placing the data at risk. In order to maintain privacy, Gopher implemented its security system to encrypt the data. It is not possible to read and translate data transmissions without a specific set of keys, nor is it possible to tamper with them without another set of keys. Each payload (data packet) is being encrypted using AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) method. AES is an advanced cipher standard and has been adopted by the U.S. government and is now used worldwide. The algorithm described by AES is a symmetric-key algorithm, meaning the same key is used for both encrypting and decrypting the data.

“Managing security across a growing number of radio devices can be a daunting task. As MESH networks may naturally grow exponentially, the inherent complexities of administrating and managing communication data security need to be efficiently addressed. We believe our security system addresses vulnerabilities, minimizes risk and ensures efficient encryption” stated Dr. Danny Rittman, Gopher’s Chief Technology Officer. “A strong encryption is a key block of robust security system. The results can be crucial in various applications including military and autonomous driving,” continued Dr. Rittman.

“Our MESH system radio system encrypts the data with an advanced cipher and only sends encrypted data back and forth, which enabling secured data communication between network devices. We use a wide variety of data security methods among then over-the-air, on-the-fly key changes, frequency hopping, multi-key support and advanced encryption. The system is designed to change keys dynamically over the air in order to avoid delays, ensuring transmissions accuracy and reliability. This is an essential feature especially when it comes to real-time systems like IoT/Mobile devices, drones, autonomous machines and robots. A robust security measures are a must in today’s constant evolving hacking environment otherwise consequences could be fatal. This starts with a strong encryption system,” finished Dr. Rittman.
