Welcome to QuEST: The latest quantum and cybersecurity news brought to you by ID Quantique.
The 2nd year of the Quantum decade has already started. Looking back, first I want to send a big thanks to you and I wish all of us a good health.
In the first year of the Quantum decade, we achieved a major step in the “quantification” of the world with Quantum Randomness shooting for the millions of units and QKD systems going operational in large scale, nation-wide deployments. This incredible year asserted our position as the n°1 Quantum Security company while delivering the highest level of trust ever reached.
At the end of this editorial, you’ll also find the first hint to our 20th anniversary. We will share more details and amazing news in the next newsletters to come.
Here are the topics of this edition, the Korean company GreenZone Security Co.,Ltd11, a specialist in security for the Internet of Things (IoT), has revealed it has applied IDQ’s QRNG chip to its security gateway equipment to increase the security of IoT devices.
A recent report by EvolutionQ presents practical consideration and use cases for QRNGs, covering many important technical aspects and suggests practical solutions and use cases.
2020 was a challenging year for many, but for quantum technology it saw many advances from leading players’ announcements to quantum advantage and the miniaturization of quantum solutions for use in mobile and IoT applications. Read our review of some of the most notable stories from Q4 2020.
Last month a group at the University of Science and Technology of China demonstrated quantum advantage with a photonic quantum computer. This represents a new milestone in quantum computing.
Join us for a two-day ETSI virtual technical event focusing on Quantum Safe Cryptography. Together with our partner Fortinet, we will be giving a presentation on “Securing a 5G Telecommunication Network with quantum key distribution.”
Enjoy the articles and stay healthy.
GreenZone Security adopts quantum technologies to secure the Internet of Things and make people’s lives safer
In today’s hyperconnected world, our lives have become much more convenient. However, if exposed to hacking, this could cause incalculable property damages, social disruptions, and even casualties that are different from traditional cyber attacks.
GreenZone Security has developed a security platform optimized for the IoT environment which includes smart lightweight encryption solutions that can be mounted on even the smallest of IoT devices. GreenZone Security’s gateways including IDQ’s quantum random number generator (QRNG) chip can safely deliver data generated from IoT devices to servers through data encryption.
Report: Practical Considerations and Use Cases for Quantum Random-Number Generators
Good randomness is a key element required for building and operating a safer and more reliable network. This report will be of interest for anybody looking for solutions to improve the security of networks and transactions.
Quantum Computing Review Q4 2020
A review of some of the most notable stories from Q4 2020, from quantum teleportation to quantum advantage and the miniaturization of quantum solutions for use in mobile and IoT applications.
Quantum Advantage Demonstrated with Photons
For the first time, Quantum advantage has been demonstrated with a photonic quantum computer. The team at the University of Science and Technology of China used a quantum system to perform a computation which would be intractable with a classical computer.
