I would not normally put this sort of post on my blog as it is more to do with outdoors, but sometimes i need to know a little more and there are far smarter people out there than i when it comes to IT and programming.
The recent cyber attacks on ABTA organisation had me thinking.
Now i guess ABTA have bought expensive anti attack software from a company which will defend its data in a certain way. So if someone has managed to hack into that software it then has access to 43,000 personal files. (TV news).
I got to thinking that if the software company provides "parcels of encrypted data" that can be given to individual customers when they decide to sign up with the organisation, the customer can then add data into specified blank areas which will then make that parcel a unique gateway.
So, if the main organisation is hacked then the amount of gateways opened would be minor in comparison to 43,000.
Does this make sense to anyone? Or am i being stupid.(You don't need to answer the last bit.)
