Two Quantum Computing Bills Are Coming To Congress

Quantum computing has made it to the United States Congress. “Quantum computing is the next technological frontier that will change the world, and we cannot afford to fall behind,” said Senator Kamala Harris (D-California) in a statement passed to Gizmodo. “We must act now to address the challenges we face in the development of this technology — our future depends on it.” From the report: The bill introduced by Harris in the Senate focuses on defense, calling for the creation of a consortium of researchers selected by the Chief of Naval Research and the Director of the Army Research Laboratory. The consortium would award grants, assist with research, and facilitate partnerships between the members. Another, yet-to-be-introduced bill, seen in draft form by Gizmodo, calls for a 10-year National Quantum Initiative Program to set goals and priorities for quantum computing in the US; invest in the technology; and partner with academia and industry. An office within the Department of Energy would coordinate the program. Another group would include members from the National Science Foundation, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the Department of Energy, the office of the Director of National Intelligence to coordinate research and education activity between agencies. Furthermore, the draft bill calls for the establishment of up to five Quantum Information Science research centers, as well as two multidisciplinary National Centers for Quantum Research and Education.

Pricing is based on the AWS edge location used to accelerate your transfer. Transfer Acceleration pricing is in addition to Data Transfer pricing.

Each time you use Transfer Acceleration to upload an object, we will check whether Transfer Acceleration is likely to be faster than a regular Amazon S3 transfer. If we determine that Transfer Acceleration is not likely to be faster than a regular Amazon S3 transfer of the same object to the same destination AWS region, we will not charge for that use of Transfer Acceleration for that transfer, and may bypass the Transfer Acceleration system for that upload.

Pricing for the replicated copy of storage is based on the destination region, while pricing for requests and inter-region data transfer are based on the source region.

For more information on the Cross-Region Replication feature, please visit the CRR FAQs and the CRR web page in the Developer Guide.

Internet Security is an important part of Identity Theft …

Every day your email inbox contains dangerous email scams. But, as the scams – often consisting of “phishing” emails designed by identity thieves to steal your personal information – become more sophisticated, how can you tell a dangerous email from a legitimate one? identitytheft.info worked with Identity Theft Expert Bob Sullivan of MSNBC to create this video warning consumers about the dangers of “phishing” emails.

Just as we secure our homes from burglars seeking to physically break-in and steal our most valuable possessions, we must be equally vigilant in the 21st Century at protecting the valuable information stored on our computers from cybercriminals who constantly attempt to break-in by means of the Internet. And, just as we can deter most burglars from raiding our homes by making it more impenetrable than our neighbors, we can do the same when it comes to erecting defenses against identity thieves and other cybercriminals.

The first line of defense in Internet security is cybercrime awareness. By being aware of the various methods cybercriminals use to penetrate your computer and steal your personal information, you will increase the odds that you wont be a victim of identity theft or other forms of cybercrime.

One of the most common methods identity thieves and cybercriminals use to steal personal information is the use of phishing.

Phishing is a form of social engineering that uses email or instant messages that appear to be from a government agency, financial institution, Internet Service Provider (ISP), Internet-based company or any agency or business you trust and/or do business with. The intent of the phishing communication is to deceive you into divulging personal information such as web site usernames and passwords, credit card numbers, financial account numbers, Social Security numbers, dates of birth and any other form of personal or account information that an identity thief or cybercriminal can use to carry out criminal activity.

A phishing email will either entice you with the promise of money or appeal to your desire to protect your personal information by claiming that your account has been compromised. You will be advised to click on a link in the email in order to receive money or to provide information in order to secure or re-activate your account. The financial enticement or the advice to follow a link and provide additional information in order to secure or re-activate your account is the bait the cybercriminal dangles before you – hence the term phishing. By taking the bait and clicking on the link in a phishing email, you are exposed to at least two risks.

The first risk involved in clicking on any link in a phishing email is that you will be re-directed to a web site that will look similar or identical to the web site the cybercriminal is impersonating. Once at the site, you will be directed to provide personal information that will allow the identity thief or cybercriminal to steal that personal information and use it for financial fraud or other crimes.

The second risk involved in clicking on any link in a phishing email is that you will be activating the execution and installation of a virus that will be surreptitiously installed on your computer. The virus may steal the personal information stored on your computer by transmitting the personal information to the identity thief or cybercriminal who sent you the phishing email. The virus may also take over your computer and turn it into part of a botnet (malicious software robot network) designed to transmit other virus laden emails to thousands of other computers around the world.

The best way to avoid becoming an identity theft victim as the result of falling for a phishing email is to follow two rules. First, never trust an email you didnt request that directs you to provide information in order to obtain a benefit or to secure or re-activate an account. Second, if you do open an email that requests personal or financial information from you, never left-click on a link in the email.

No reputable business or agency will send you an unsolicited email requesting personal or financial information from you. If you believe the email might be legitimate, contact the sending business or agency either by using a web address you’ve previously bookmarked, one that you obtain independently from the email or by calling a phone number using a listing obtained independently of the email.

Remember: The greatest danger associated with a phishing email is from left-clicking on any links within the email. So think before you click. Better yet dont click at all.

For more information about phishing emails – and to see several examples of phishing emails commonly placed in circulation – please watch the video above produced by identitytheft.info in cooperation with consumer reporter Bob Sullivan of MSNBC.

AES (acronym of Advanced Encryption Standard) is a symmetric encryption algorithm.The algorithm was developed by two Belgian cryptographer Joan Daemen and Vincent Rijmen.AES was designed to be efficient in both hardware and software, and supports a block length of 128 bits and key lengths of 128, 192, and 256 bits.

AES encryption is used by U.S. for securing sensitive but unclassified material, so we can say it is enough secure.

Encrypt email messages – Outlook

When you need to protect the privacy of an email message, encrypt it. Encrypting an email message in Outlook means it’s converted from readable plain text into scrambled cipher text. Only the recipient who has the private key that matches the public key used to encrypt the message can decipher the message for reading. Any recipient without the corresponding private key, however, sees indecipherable text.

This article is specifically about encrypting and digitally signing a message with S/MIME. To understand the full list of email encryption options go to the article on Email Encryption in Office 365.

What happens if the recipient doesn’t have the corresponding private key? The recipient will see this message:

“This item cannot be displayed in the Reading Pane. Open the item to read its contents.”

And if the recipient tries to open the item, a dialog box opens with this message:

“Sorry, we’re having trouble opening this item. This could be temporary, but if you see it again you might want to restart Outlook. Your Digital ID name cannot be found by the underlying security system.”

Sending and viewing encrypted email messages requires both sender and recipient to share their digital ID, or public key certificate. This means that you and the recipient each must send the other a digitally signed message, which enables you to add the other person’s certificate to your Contacts. You cant encrypt email messages without a digital ID.

If you send an encrypted message to a recipient whose email setup doesnt support encryption, you’re offered the option of sending the message in an unencrypted format.

Any attachments sent with encrypted messages also are encrypted.

In message that you are composing, click File > Properties.

Click Security Settings, and then select the Encrypt message contents and attachments check box.

Compose your message, and then click Send.

When you choose to encrypt all outgoing messages by default, you can write and send messages the same as with any other messages, but all potential recipients must have your digital ID to decode or view your messages.

On the File tab. choose Options >Trust Center > Trust Center Settings.

On the Email Security tab, under Encrypted email, select the Encrypt contents and attachments for outgoing messages check box.

To change additional settings, such as choosing a specific certificate to use, click Settings.

In the message that you’re composing, on the Options tab, in the More Options group, click the dialog box launcher in the lower-right corner.

Click Security Settings, and then select the Encrypt message contents and attachments check box.

Compose your message, and then click Send.

When you choose to encrypt all outgoing messages by default, you can write and send messages the same as you do with any other messages. All potential recipients, however, must have your digital ID to decode or view those messages.

On the File tab, click Options > Trust Center > Trust Center Settings.

On the E-mail Security tab, under Encrypted e-mail, select the Encrypt contents and attachments for outgoing messages check box.

To change additional settings, such as choosing a specific certificate to use, click Settings.

In the message, on the Message tab, in the Options group on the ribbon, click the Encrypt Message Contents and Attachments button .

Note:If you don’t see this button, click the Options Dialog Box Launcher in the lower-right corner of the group to open the Message Options dialog box. Click the Security Settings button, and in the Security Properties dialog box, select Encrypt message contents and attachments. Click OK, and then close the Message Options dialog box.

Compose your message and send it.

Choosing to encrypt all outgoing messages means, in effect, your e-mail is encrypted by default. You can write and send messages the same as with any other e-mail messages, but all potential recipients must have your digital ID to decode your messages.

On the Tools menu, click Trust Center, and then click E-mail Security.

Under Encrypted e-mail, select the Encrypt contents and attachments for outgoing messages check box.

To change additional settings, such as choosing a specific certificate to use, click Settings.

An Illustrated Glossary of Cryptocurrency Slang (Infographic)

From “whales” to “shills” and “bag holders,” if you want to be a successful cryptocurrency investor, here are the terms you should know.

June 16, 20182 min read

Since the rise of Bitcoin over the past few years, cryptocurrencies have been all the hype. And if youre interested in hopping on-board the crypto-train, its important to know what youre talking about. Just like the pool of investors and the market itself have grown considerably over the years, so has the culture, along with new slang and memes popping up everyday.

Related:14 Things You Need to Know AboutBitcoin

To equip yourself with up-to-date cryptocurrency slang, heres a quick glossary of important terms you should know. For starters, get used to hearing the word whale thrown around. Whales are investors who own five percent or more of any cryptocurrency coin. Other names to be aware of are shills and bag holders. A shill is basically a scammer in the crypto-world — a person who promotes altcoins for their own benefit. They encourage others to invest in altcoins in order bump up their own investments. Bag holders are people who hold onto their investments for too long. When it comes investing in the volatile cryptocurrency market, its incredibly important to know when to hold on and when to let go.

Speaking of holding onto investments, another common term is the acronym, HODL, meaning hold on for dear life. This term was coined after someone accidentally wrote HODL instead of hold in a 2013 Bitcoin forum. From the hashtag #REKT, used to describe investors who experience a major coin collapse, to the phrase to the moon!, meaning a coin is increasing extremely fast, there are a number of tricky terms to learn if you plan on being a successful crypto-investor.
