Paul "Prem" Sobel
Chief Technical Officer
|Whether serving as a senior scientist or special task
force engineer, Founding Partner, Paul "Prem" Sobel has dedicated a 40-year career to mission critical projects
where protecting sensitive data is paramount.
The repeated need for airtight
data transfer inspired Prem to privately develop advanced encryption that was
superior to typical programs in use.
Sobel's focus in cryptography began with his master's work at CalTech in
the 1960's, where he invented a new algorithm for testing probability
distributions, by viewing the data in multiple dimensions. After discovering
flaws in currently used random number generators and studying limitations of fixed key length encryption algorithms, Sobel began developing a new cryptographic approach that would overcome these weaknesses.
Sobel's years of research in the foundations of mathematics contributes to the cryptographic development of the new technology for MerlinCryption's stronger Anti-Statistical Block Encryption (ASBE) algorithm with variable key length.
His security work encompasses log management, NAC, super
computer design, graphical and audio presentation of Big Data in eleven or more
dimensions, and image processing. He has held chief scientist/principal
engineer positions at NASA, Xerox, Northrop, Intel, Vitesse, Phillips, and AMD.
Prem leads MerlinCryption cryptography, engineering, including security
architecture, and product development..
Sobel graduated with honors with a B.S.E.E.
Electrical Engineering from Pratt Institute, and an M.S.E.E. Electrical
Engineering from California institute of Technology. He holds three patents in CPU Architecture and one classified patent.
