Tracking your Virtual Life to set your Credit Score, Internationally
As more and more groups look to use information extracted from the internet about individuals, the phrase "Individual Autonomy" will have ever deeper meaning. At present the information the IMF is proposing to use in the setting of credit scores is freely available thanks to data mining at all levels of an individual's virtual life. From browsing histories to online purchases, from online gaming to tweets on twitter, all of these experiences are mined to their maximum for information about the individuals involved. And all of this is done with no control by the individual who's data is being mined much less any knowledge that it even occurs.
Since CYPHYX has as its motto that very phrase, "Individual Autonomy", we are working to create the necessary products that will empower individuals, whether person or company, to control their information about their virtual lives. Protecting data is only one aspect with many other tools in the works to protect many other online activities.

A one-time pad harkens back to the days when an actual encryption key was distributed on paper and a unique sheet of paper was used each time. Because each key is used only once, cracking such encryption is difficult.Wayne Rash, eWeek article, "Why Quantum-Resistant Encryption Needs Quantum Key Distribution for Real Security"
