Cover Note

Garth-Wayne is willing to take on additional assignments, for external project-contracts / positions worldwide, to build-up funding to further his own internal venture described below. He will consider external project-contracts / positions involving the type of experiences discussed throughout this CV, especially Quantum related, but also for ground-breaking, state-of-the-art product R&D. Both temporary and permanent can be considered. Please connect and contact him, initially via LinkedIn.

Present Focus

Garth-Wayne, a former Silicon Valley Innovator with more than 33-years of international technology expertise; is the Inventor / Architect of DNA-256 Encryption (inspired by genetics), encapsulated with a Quantum / True Random-Number-Generator into an ASIC / chip, now available globally to OEMs, governments, organizations, and individuals, as a range of Impenetrable and Unbreakable Post-Quantum End-to-End Encryption (E2EE) products.

AES-256 and other previously trusted encryption algorithms, have vulnerabilities as confirmed by the NSA, NIST and ETSI, especially when faced with a suitably configured Quantum Computer (and yes they do exist).

DNA-256 solves these vulnerabilities in an impenetrable future-proofed way, and has absolutely no back-doors or mathematical weaknesses, proven by years of analysis. 256-bit keys, are intelligently generated, by a unique Quantum-Randomized Fusion of the entire information.

Each time encryption is performed, even on the same data / information, the newly generated key will differ vastly from any previous key, also 50% of the bits in the encryption, will be 0|1, differ from any previous encryption (Cipher-Text) and the original data (Plain-Text), thus achieving non-compressible maximum entropy, looking just like truly-random files!

These and other unique features, make the encryption impenetrable and unbreakable by eavesdroppers, hackers, and cryptanalysis techniques, even using Super / Quantum Computers.

A self-contained device, based on the IC, can encrypt and decrypt data of ANY format on a USB memory-stick plugged into it. A USB Command and Control Interface has been provided, to make it easy to interface the chips / devices with supervisory computers and software systems, for automated processing.

Chips, USB Devices, and Din-Rail / Rack-Mount Units, can be ordered, for Impenetrable Data Storage / Communications, for QKD, VPN, Cloud, Computers, Smartphones, Vehicles, Aircraft, IoT, SCADA, Satellites... Any Escrow scenario can be added. Enquiries are welcome.

Work & Education History

2005 – Present: Freelance Consultant, Systems Architect & Analyst, Contractor.

Required relocation around the United Kingdom & Europe.

·         MANSION CONTROL (and an in-stealth-mode start-up company awaiting funding) – Research, Brainstorming, Mathematics, Cryptography, Cryptanalysis, Simulation, and Modelling, in C / C++ for architectural exploration and performance optimization. R&D of a unique cryptographic primitive with quantum-like properties, inspired by genetics, and based on it – an encryption-algorithm / streaming-bit-processing-pipeline, named DNA-256.

It has no back-doors or mathematical weaknesses / shortcuts, and completely resists parallel computing attack techniques, so is exponentially stronger than present algorithms (like AES-256 etc), and will withstand cryptanalysis and brute-force attacks by any computer, super-computer, or quantum-computer, or network of these, present and future, thus is even better than the Post-Quantum performance hoped for by the NSA, NIST, and ETSI. Assuming that a network of quantum computers knew and understood the enigma of the unique algorithm, and could try a different 256-bit key through the decryption algorithm, every 1-micro-second (1us), or at the rate of 1-million keys per second, then collectively it would take them (at the precise rate of 365.2422 days per year), a mind-boggling 3.6693 e+63 years (nearly, the number 4 followed by 63 zeros, in years), to guarantee a successful brute-force decryption of a single file or zipped folder.

Each encrypted, file or zipped folder, gets its own unique 256-bit key, so a brute-force attack would have to be re-started afresh, for each. From a practical point of view, this level of performance is considered as, Impenetrable and Unbreakable End-To-End Encryption (E2EE), even exceeding the requirements for Post-Quantum / Quantum-Resistant / Quantum-Secure / Quantum-Safe – Encryption.

DNA-256 has been coded in portable C / C++ for modelling, simulation, and analysis purposes. A Graphical User Interface (GUI), has also been produced, which provides, binary image processing and display, for easy observation and differential-analysis of bit-patterns and randomness / entropy, during testing, verification and validation.

DNA-256 has future applications in: Quantum Key Distribution (QKD); Software and Hardware Authentication; Licence Verification / Validation; Access Control; Data Shredding; Anti-Counterfeiting; Anti-Tampering; Hard-Disk Encryption; Cyber Security; IoT Security; Data Security; Internet, Intranet, Wireless, RF, IR, Satellite, Cable, and Fibre – Telecommunications Absolute Privacy; Cloud Security; LAN / WAN Network Security; Secure Banking; ID Authentication; Secure Aerospace and Automotive Telemetry; Encryption / Cryptographic Engines or Co-Processors; Encryption Dongles for Smartphones, Netbooks, Laptops, Workstations, Servers...

As the owner / inventor / architect of the intellectual property (IP), Garth-Wayne plans to sell / licence it, but meanwhile continue to produce and add further features to, a range of products based on it; and is currently marketing these to governmental and commercial organizations, through his 1200+ 1st level LinkedIn contacts network, mostly made up of: experts in Quantum Physics and Data / Network Security, and, organizations and government personnel worldwide, requiring impenetrable solutions.
