Here's an overview of our innovation.
Nanocube® is a registered trademark of Advanced Nanotechnology Solutions, Inc. and will be enabled by licensing technologies from our academic partners and developing solutions with our commercial partners.
Nanocube will change the paradigm. Nanotube is a 3D IC enabled hardware and software solution. It uses 3D designs to create breakthrough performance. It leverages the physical and chemical properties of new materials to create extremely secure hardware, which combined with software will provide unparalleled levels of security. Nanocube incorporates a small, low-cost microchip (with simple state machine software) to function as a secure element.
It will solve a fundamental cyber security issue: granting access only to the authorized user and authorized software. Nanocube allows access to the network only when the exact combination of the following elements are satisfied: i) an authenticated user, ii) in possession of all the correct cryptographic keys, and iii) on the right hardware device.
If any element is absent or incorrect, access will be denied. For example, if a rogue user tries to access a Nanocube–protected device (stolen or not), access will be blocked. Or if an authorized user tries to access the network without the Nanocube-protected device, the attempt will be thwarted. Nanocube therefore authenticates the user, encrypts the data on the user device, prevents unauthorized software from being downloaded onto the user device, and thereby protects the network. Thus, Nanocube will become foundational to both hardware and software security.
Each of the security enhancements in Nanocube is a dramatic and exponential improvement over the state of the art. Each enhancement can be used - by itself, in a stand-alone manner – and can be implemented in conventional technologies like NAND to radically improve security. When combined into Nanocube, each additional innovation adds another layer of exponential improvement to cyber security.
