DNA Computing in security

In today’s world where no modern encryption algorithms are spared of the security breach, the world of information security is on the look out for fresh ideas. Thus came up the new theory of DNA computing in the fields of cryptography and steganography.

Though researches have been done to demonstrate DNA computing and its use in the areas of cryptography, steganography and authentication, the limitations of sophisticated lab requirements, along with high labour cost has still kept DNA computing at bay from today’s security world. But on the other hand DNA authentication has become a great boon.
