The recent addition of the Quantis Appliance completes the quantum random number generation line-up for ID Quantique in 2016.
Designed as a source of true randomness for network applications, the Quantis Appliance joins the outstanding Quantum Key Factory – dedicated to the creation of truly random encryption keys and unique digital tokens for secure crypto operations.
Both quantum key generation devices are based on the internationally tested and certified Quantis Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG). The Quantis QRNG range – available as a USB device, PCI Express Board or OEM component* – is a family of true random number generators that use the fundamentally random nature of quantum measurements as a source of entropy.
Quantis QRNG is one of the most trusted RNGs in the market; having passed a range of international certifications since it was first released in 2005.
It holds the Swiss METAS certification and has passed both the NIST and DIEHARD statistical test suites. It is also available with the stringent AIS 31 testing standard up to level PTG.3, which makes it applicable for use in strongly regulated gaming or security markets.
Quantis QRNG provides instant entropy from boot-up, making it suitable for a wide range of applications, including:
- Lotteries and gaming
- Password and PIN generation
- Random seed generation
- Numerical simulation
- Statistical research
Affordable, compact and reliable; the Quantis QRNG operates at high bit rates (up to 16Mbps) and is compatible with all major operating systems.
Thanks to its reliability, the quality of its random output and its certifications, the Quantis QRNG has rapidly become the reference hardware random number generator for the demanding and highly regulated gaming and lottery industries.
Quantis is available to buy online from the IDQ website.
*Previously available in PCI Board configuration. ID Quantique will discontinue sales of the Quantis PCI board from July 1st, 2016. It will be replaced by the more current Quantis PCI-Express board. All orders for the Quantis PCI board received before July 1st will be honoured. Customers using the Quantis PCI board, and who wish to order a last batch before the End-of-Sales should contact ID Quantique. Technical support for the Quantis PCI boards will be provided for at least two years after the End-of-Sales.
