Snyk Security Review

By Lane Wagner We recently integrated Snyk into Qvault as a way to get more visibility into known vulnerabilities in Qvault’s code base. Snyk has already patched a critical vulnerability in lodash for us, which allowed us to continue releasing new versions before the official fix for lodash was published a few days ago. We can’t speak to whether Snyk …

Is AES-256 Quantum Resistant?

By Lane Wagner With quantum computers getting more powerful every year, many worry about the safety of modern encryption standards. As quantum computers improve in performance and the number of qubits used for calculations increase, current crypto systems are under more threat of attack. What will break? Many asymmetric encryption algorithms have been mathematically proven to be broken by quantum …

Randomness and Entropy in Node and Electron

Randomness is a hard problem for computers. For this reason most functions that generate randomness are not considered cryptographically secure. That means that it is possible that an attacker can take a good guess at what number a non-secure randomness generator generated. How can randomness be attacked? Many non-secure randomness (or entropy) generators would do something similar to the following: …
