The end of HACKING? Cryptography breakthrough could make computer programs impenetrable to cyber criminals
The system is called an ‘obfuscator’ because it obscures information

It was developed by Professor Amit Sahai from the University of California
Sahai calls it a ‘multilinear jigsaw puzzle’ that mixes random parts with files

Only people who run the program in a certain way can access it
To others, the individual pieces of code will appear to be meaningless
This makes hacking and infecting software 'virtually impossible'
