Google has a new encryption form called Adiantum, which is designed for storage encryption for cheaper Android devices without compromising on performance. Currently, devices such as Android smartphones, smart watches, and TVs are smaller than Google's encryption requirements. Adiantum Google says that every Android device can be encrypted, which means that privacy will not only be for those who can afford it.
Encryption is a vital defense against everyone, whether they are criminals or conquered authorities who want to access your personal information without your consent. Adiantum is designed to encrypt your Android device by storing all documents or files stored on your device.
Most Android hardware is currently encrypted using the AES standard, but cheaper phones like Low Power Processors built around ARM, for example, Cortex-A7 missing AES hardware support. Google claims that Adiantum is five times faster than Android's typical AES encryption on low-power devices. Nerds can read all the information about the evolution of the new encryption mode in this blog post.
"We hope that Adiantum will democratize the encryption of all devices," said Eugene Liderman, director of Google's Mobile Safety Strategy. “As you shouldn't buy a phone without text messaging, there will be no excuse for compromising the performance of the device. Everyone should have privacy and security regardless of their phone price.
