Driven by the relentless news about cyber threats, security breaches and data loss, law makers and regulators are increasingly engaged in implementing new legal frameworks and defining new obligations for data security. Prominent within recent legal developments has been a focus on network encryption. Our presentation provides an introduction to network encryption technology – including encryption algorithms, key management and authentication – and introduces the concept of post quantum security. We clarify the most prominent myths of network encryption and evaluate the applicability of encryption technology on different network layers.
