Welcome to QuEST: The latest quantum and cybersecurity news brought to you by ID Quantique.
We start this month with the exciting launch of the Samsung Galaxy Quantum2, equipped with the world’s smallest QRNG chip from ID Quantique. This newest QRNG-Powered 5G smartphone is embedded with an even wider range of secured applications from messaging to music, offering a differentiated experience for customers who value both performance and security.
This quarter’s review of global quantum computing news looks at the recent surge of investment from national governments looking to advance research into quantum technologies across a broad variety of applications and the race to build the first national quantum computer.
We are happy to announce that Thales TCT has embedded ID Quantique’s quantum random number generator (QRNG) chip within the Luna T7 Crypto Module, creating the industry’s first FIPS 140-2 compliant HSM capable of generating quantum enhanced keys.
A recent spate of cyberattacks on Government agencies has highlighted the need to add far more robust security. Our blog explores how quantum technologies are being employed to future-proof government data and ensure long-lasting data sovereignty.
Last but not least, the European Quantum Industry Consortium (QuIC) announced its successful kick-off with its general Assembly event held online on April 14, which gathered more than 100 members from all sectors of the quantum technologies industry across Europe. We are pleased to announce that Nicolas Gisin, ID Quantique’s co-founder and chairman of the board, will take an active role as member of the QuIC governing board.
Stay quantum curious.
ID Quantique and SK Telecom unveil the Samsung Galaxy Quantum2
Like its predecessor the Galaxy A Quantum, the Galaxy Quantum2 is equipped with the world’s smallest quantum random number generator (QRNG) chipset measuring 2.5mm by 2.5mm developed by ID Quantique, SKT’s strategic partner in quantum cryptography communication technology.
The Galaxy Quantum2 provides a differentiated security experience to customers. The native integration of the QRNG chip into the Android Keystore (APIs) automatically enhances the security of a large number of services used on the smartphone.
Quantum Computing Review Q1 2021
Welcome to a bumper first edition of the Quantum Computing landscape for 2021, covering the latest industry and scientific news. We consider the impact of a flurry or recent government investments in Quantum research and the latest announcements from IonQ and Honeywell.
Thales Trusted Cyber Technologies partners with ID Quantique to provide high-assurance key protection.
Luna T-Series HSMs are the choice for government agencies when storing, protecting and managing cryptographic keys used to secure sensitive data and critical applications.
Securing Government data in the post-Quantum era
Government communications are a prime target for hackers looking for everything from financial gain to political influence. Read our blog to learn how Quantum technologies secure highly sensitive data.
The “European Quantum Industry Consortium” launches
Nicolas Gisin has been elected to the governing board of this new organization. The establishment of the QUIC consortium comes at a time when Union has ambitious plans for quantum research and technology deployment in Europe, in order to make the digital decade a reality.
