Project ‘Morpheus’ the unhackable computer
The project called ‘Morpheus’ is a new approach to hardware design capable of creating an unhackable computer. To keep hackers away, the scientists have created a new hardware design that pushes data around the computer regularly and randomly while also destroying past versions as it goes. However, it’s not just the targeted data that shuffles around. According to the developers, any bug that could be exploited will also be a moving target, as would any passwords. Even if a hacker manages to find a vulnerability, it will immediately move, leaving no time for the hacker to exploit the resources. “We are making the computer an unsolvable puzzle. It’s like if you’re solving a Rubik’s Cube and every time you blink, I rearrange it.” According to the scientists, a working Morpheus computer would be able to defend against future threats that have to be identified yet.
