This 3D Printed Hard Drive Could Be Most Secure Data Storage Ever

No matter how much you try and secure digital data the risk that it will be modified always remains. How do you know that your backup isn't compromised?

Whilst working on the development of probabilistic quantum based memory storage, the curious looking 3D printed object was created to demonstrate how memory could be stored in such a way as to allow a computer to faithfully reconstruct information by exposure to physical stimuli.

The object in the photograph contains the musical compositions of an artist, and in fact only a few kilobytes, however what is very exciting is that the computer software that decodes this unlikey looking storage device can rebuild its memory by a process of neuroplastic rehabilitation!

What does that mean in real terms?

It means that even if the object is damaged, the software can be trained to remember the correct memory without actually knowing what to look for. The implications are far reaching... for example, it could be used to allow mission critical operating systems to by faithfully restored from physical objects in such a way that third party tampering is essentially impossible.

The system although primitive, uses mathematical constructs of quantum probability distributions to create recursive networks in which solutions to unknown data blocks are created. As the software interprets the physical object, it is constantly evolving its neural network in ways which allow it to solve the otherwise impossible problems. In essence, its memory is being rehabilitated in much the same way as a human is rehabilitated after a stroke or brain injury. As each new piece of the puzzle is solved, it begins to recognise previously meaningless geometric structures. These in turn create new pathways that allow the understanding of new data in the object and eventually the data in the 3D object is fully recovered as the original information.

Decode keys can be stored biologically in human responses such as iris dilation and even heart rythm

Because the cryptkeys required to decode the object can be stored across multiple channels and can take the form of images, sounds, or indeed even biological signatures, the process represents one of the most secure processes of information storage and transmission. Even if the object is lost or stolen, without the required quantum cryptkeys the object is a meaningless lump of plastic. For example, the keys required could be stored in the response patterns of a human eye, or even the heart rate response of a certain individual to a number of visual and physical stimulus. This would mean that sensitive information could be implanted both in the messenger and the object and recombined at the point of receipt.

With more serious funding this technology can now be downsized and refined to allow the secure storage and transmission of data by both electronic methods and physical strategies such as delivery by drone of secure solid storage drives that can be easily destroyed or even recycled.

Human biological/cybernetic augmentation and data implants

Also how we might augment our body to allow more efficient entanglement of computer information with our biological systems to facilitate the secure storage of vast amounts of data in your own bodies is of particular interest. As nano technology advances, the ability embed sensory devices able to transmit our physical responses to visual and auditory stimulus is theoretically already here.  I will cover this topic in more detail in future posts and hope to share with you positive results from attempts to securely encode computer files in my own eye itself.  Although in its infancy such techniques are proving highly possible!
