The new algorithm encrypts the data 30-40 percent faster than the previous ones. The results of the research will appear in October 2009 issue of the 'IEEE Transactions on Information Theory', one of the top research journals in the field of transmission, processing and utilization of information.
Sarkar claims that this is the fastest method to encrypt hard disk and says that he has scientific evidence to prove it. "One has to see this in the context of the anonymous and strict review process of the journal 'IEEE Transactions on Information Theory'. The reviewers allowed this claim to stand because I could scientifically justify it in the paper. A hollow claim would have been struck down by the reviewers," he added.
