Google Adiantum- Fast Storage Encryption Mode For Smartphones
If you are still thinking that one of the easiest ways to protect your data on a smartphone is to set a password and biometric lock then you are absolutely wrong. These types of lock can only protect your data and phone for a limited time period but not all smartphones, tablets and smartwatches offer high protection through passcode and biometric lock. They are not much powerful to deal with high technique resources and no doubt thefts are smarter than you.
Apparently, after observing all these things- Google researches have created a new encryption approach that is faster and effective than the simple password and biometric process. Most importantly, the new Google encryption namely ‘Adiantum’ aims to bring protection to billions of Android users all over the world.
Adiantum is a new form of encryption that designed especially for phones and smart devices and doesn’t need any specialized hardware to run. However, it will not run on low-budget phones and will properly support next-generation devices in terms of security. Billions of people, at present, scared to come to share their pictures and other related data online but now for the first time, you can do it safely.
Currently, Android offers storage encryption using the AES (Advanced Encryption Standard). Android is running on a wide range of devices including not only the latest flagship phones but also entry level android Go phones sold primarily in developing countries along with smartwatches and TVs. It is to be noted – AES go very slow on cheaper Android devices, resulting in slowing your phones and time-consuming in launching the apps.
Even though Adiantum is very new for the smartphones and other devices, still, we have full confidence in the security which it will give.
It is to be noted that Adiantum will enable on the devices which are either full-disk or file-based encryption on devices with AES performance less than or equal to 50MiB per second and launching with Android Pie. If we talk about the different Android platforms, then the new Android Q (yet to be launch) will already be the part of Adiantum and also intend to update the Android Compatibility Definition Document (CDD) to require all new Android devices be encrypted using one of the allowed encryption algorithms.
