Virtual Adventures has developed a new form of encryption, and to prove its strength, the company is letting anyone try to crack it.
Developed ten years ago as part of a video game, Vase Software's original purpose was to enable secure transfer of video files. The game ultimately failed, but the video encryption system proved surprisingly strong. In the years since, the company transformed itself, switching from game design to cryptography. The company has spent the last few years refining the software from an overly-complex form into a user friendly, market-ready version.
