QUANTIS

True RANDOM NUMBER Generator Exploiting QUANTUM PHYSICS

QUANTIS is a physical random number generator exploiting an elementary quantum optics process. Photons - light particles - are sent one by one onto a semi-transparent mirror and detected. The exclusive events (reflection - transmission) are associated to "0" - "1" bit values. The operation of Quantis is continuously monitored to ensure immediate detection of a failure and disabling of the random bit stream.  The product exists in four versions:

WHAT MAKES QUANTIS A TRULY UNIQUE TRUE RANDOM NUMBER GENERATOR (TRNG) ?

Quantis uses Quantum Physics to create truly-random numbers
Existing randomness sources can be grouped in two classes: software solutions, which can only generate pseudo-random bit streams, and physical sources. In the latter, most random generators rely on classical physics to produce what looks like a random stream of bits. In reality, determinism is hidden behind complexity.
Contrary to classical physics, quantum physics is fundamentally random. It is the only theory within the fabric of modern physics that integrates randomness. Quantis uses this property to generate random numbers from quantum origin (read the following white paper for more information).

Quantis generates random numbers at a very high bit rate
Contrary to existing products, Quantis produces random numbers at a very high bite rate up to 16Mbps. This is the highest truly-random bit rate available to date.

Quantis continuously does a status check
The processing unit of Quantis performs a live verification of its functioning. Thanks to this feature, users can have a high level of trust in the random numbers they are using.

RANDOM NUMBERS FROM QUANTUM ORIGIN

Although random numbers are required in many applications, their generation is often overlooked. Being deterministic, computers are not capable of producing random numbers. A physical source of randomness is necessary. Quantum physics being intrinsically random, it is natural to exploit a quantum process for such a source. Quantum random number generators (QRNG) have the advantage over conventional randomness sources of being invulnerable to environmental perturbations and of allowing live status verification (read the following white paper for more information).

 

QUANTIS IS OFFICIALLy CERTIFIED

QUANTIS has been evaluated and certified by the Swiss Federal Office of Metrology (also known as METAS), the Swiss national organization in charge of measurement science, testing and compliance. It confirmed that the quality of its random output complies with the highest requirements. See the Certificate of Conformity and read the Test Report.

QUANTIS has also been evaluated by Compliance Testing Laboratory (Bangor, UK), which confirmed that it is "suitably unpredictable and fit for purpose". Download certificate in PDF format here.

QUANTIS has also been approved by national authorities and can be used for gaming applications.
