This article is about the technique of self-destructing a message that is enciphered. The identity of the person sending the привнот message can be obscured by encrypting it from the sender to the receiver, who would need a specific key that only they possess in order to decrypt and read it. This technique may not be practical for everyone because if there is no method for breaking or bypassing encryption, then interceptors might be able to intercept and read messages in transit before they are encrypted.
How the self-destructive code works
In order to create a self-destructing message, an enciphered code must be used. In this case, the enciphered code contains a hidden trigger that is set to activate after it has been delivered and read. The trigger could be a command such as ‘delete all files’ or any other command that would leave no traces of the encoded message unless it is intercepted and thus activated before being read.
Risk of hacking and potential breaches
There is always a risk that an attacker might be able to hack computers or your own computer and remove messages before they are delivered. If this happens, the self-destruct code would not work. Transmission of messages through e-mails or any file sharing technology leaves the encoded message subject to hacker techniques, but if it works, it can keep evidence from prying eyes.
Potential uses to prevent cybercrime and other internet crimes
Since this technique is still at an early stage of development, it has not been perfected to be used in real world applications. However, there are potential uses for this in the future. This code could potentially be useful for protecting against cybercrime and other internet crimes that might occur in future.
How the technology would work
The technology would work by having the sender encrypt the message and send it securely, then have the recipient decrypt it after they believe they have received the encryption key that would unlock or open the message. After that, they would need to set a command in a text file with a command like ‘delete all files’, ‘delete all e-mails’, etc. This trigger command can be used to delete both text and file format messages. The trigger should be given at least a second before it is activated.
The self-destructing code is still in the early stages of development and the technique has the potential to improve with time. The technology and methods to implement it are still being created by numerous programmers and web developers and the technology is not perfect, but has great potential for use in both personal uses as well as for preventing cybercrimes in future.
