A security system startup venture has taken the wraps off a new type of encryption-processing scheme that it claims can increase performance over competing technologies by as much as tenfold. As a result, Andes Networks Inc. expects to see the cost of implementing security features fall so low, so fast, that all traffic over the public Internet could be encrypted within a few years.

    The company has focused on the secure sockets layer (SSL) format, which has become a de facto standard for Web traffic. Although it is not often used for full encryption and authentication operations, SSL is built into every Web browser and is therefore available to anybody using the Internet.
