IBM dual factor NFC-based authentication system unveiled

Dual form factor authentication has been used for a long time to add an additional layer of security both online and in the real world. Dual factor authentication requires a user to offer some sort of physical token along with something they know such as a password to access systems secured using the technique. Technology giant IBM has announced a new dual factor authentication system that is NFC-based and intended to help users keep online accounts and services secure.

IBM silicon nanophotonics speeds servers with 25Gbps light

IBM silicon nanophotonics speeds servers with 25Gbps light

IBM has developed a light-based data transfer system delivering more than 25Gbps per channel, opening the door to chip-dense slabs of processing power that could speed up server performance, the internet, and more. The company's research into silicon integrated nanophotonics addresses concerns that interconnects between increasingly powerful computers, such as mainframe servers, are unable to keep up with the speeds of the computers themselves. Instead of copper or even optical cables, IBM envisages on-chip optical routing, where light blasts data between dense, multi-layer computing hubs.
