DRDO Chief Calls To Develop Advanced Encryption OR Code Cryptography System

India needs to develop advanced encryption or code cryptography to foolproof national security from cyber warfare, the DG, Defence Research and Development Organisation and Scientific Advisor to the Defence Minister, Dr V.K. Saraswat said.

He was delivering a lecture on “Cyber Warfare and National Security” at the inaugural function of the 12th research and project exhibition of IIIT-Hyderabad, showcasing the prominent research and projects being carried out at the institute.

Dr Saraswat said that while India has to develop high level cryptographic tools and keys to protect its information, it should also aim at deciphering the information which is being used against its interests. He added that the need of the hour was a thoughtful security system for countering terrorism. 
Recalling the cyber attacks on Commonwealth Games ticketing, Dr Saraswat, who played a key role in the development of the Prithvi missile, said that warfare had come a long way from the conventional mode to missiles and finally to using internet and mobile communication systems as launching pads for aggression.
