One of this year’s thesis topics is on streamming video encryption. This is very interesting indeed since it will address society’s continuous demand for better security. However, encrypting streamming videos might compromise its speed. Even with high compression, a stronger encryption might still compromise speed. But there really is a lot of potential regarding this study. I guess I’ll do a little bit of research of my own on this subject.
I’m also wondering if it is feasible to integrate quantum cryptography to streamming video encryption since one time keys seem to be a very promising encryption method. But I have severa questions, though. Is quantum encryption compatible with the IP traffic? Is it fast enough to cater to commercial needs? How secure will the encryption be if we will use quantum cryptography? Is it feasible to encrypt each video frame with a separate key and still not compromise speed?
I guess I’ll be doing a little research on this subject. That is, after I finish our machine exercises on Scheme LISP, our report on Smalltalk and my review of the novel Night for my english class.
/*And FYI, I got a “Very Satisfactory” (2.33333) performance rating on our dormitory evaluation. I might actually be re-admitted next semester. Thanks to Micah and the Socials Committee who gave me a performance rating of 1.0. I got a rating of 3.0 each from the house council (points card) and from my corridor.*/
