Adiantum by Google: the encryption of the poor


Google has a new form of encryption called Adiantum and designed to offer storage encryption on cheaper Android devices without affecting performance.

At the moment, cheap devices such as Android smart Go smartphones, smart watches and TVs are not working as well as Google's cryptographic requirements.
With Adiantum, Google reports that every Android device can be encrypted, which means that privacy will not only be for those who can afford it.adiantum

Encryption has long been seen as vital for everyone, as everyone wants to get more information without your consent, from criminals, to advertising agencies or authorities.

Adiantum is designed to encrypt the storage of an Android device, keeping the documents or files stored in it private and secure.

Adiantum: There will be no excuse to undermine security for device performance reasons

The majority of Android hardware to date is encrypted with the AES standard, but cheaper handsets, such as those using low-cost processors, do not have AES.

Google reports that the Addiantum standard is five times faster than typical Android AES encryption on low power devices.

Adiantum is scheduled to be released with Android Q, its successor Android Pie which will be later released by 2019. But do not expect new technology to accelerate medium or high cost devices.

Google says that BEA is still the encryption standard when hardware can support it.

"Our hope is that Adiantum will democratize encryption for all devices," said Eugene Liderman, Director of Security Strategy for Google Mobile.

"Just as you would not buy a phone without text messages, there will be no excuse for compromises in security due to the performance of the device. "Everyone should have privacy and security, regardless of the price of their phone."
