For a given cryptographic scheme, as perfect security is almost never achievable, one requires a computational assumption. Computational assumptions are some well-defined problems that are widely accepted as difficult.
We reveal that in the interoperable world of OpenPGP, unforeseen cross-configuration attacks become possible.
FoundationDB, an open-source transactional key-value store, is one of the first systems to combine the flexibility and scalability of NoSQL architectures with the power of ACID transactions.
FoundationDB, as explored in "FoundationDB: A Distributed Key-Value Store," by Jingyu Zhou et al., pioneered the development of a scalable distributed key-value store with strong consistency guarantees.
