The Doghouse: Vadium Technology
Yet another one-time pad system. Not a lot of detail on the website, but this bit says it all:
"Based on patent-pending technology and 18 years of exhaustive research, Vadium's AlphaCipher Encryption System (tm), implements a true digital One-Time-Pad ("OTP") cipher. The One-Time Pad is the only method of encrypting data where the strength of protection is immune to the mounting threats posed by breakthroughs in advanced mathematics and the ever-increasing processing power of computers. The consistently accelerated increases in computing power are proven to be a present and severe threat to all the other prevalent encryption methods."
I am continually amazed at the never-ending stream of one-time pad systems. Every few months another company believes that they have finally figured out how to make a commercial one-time pad system. They announce it, are uniformly laughed at, and then disappear. It's cryptography's perpetual motion machine.
