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.
