Welcome to QuEST: The latest quantum and cybersecurity news brought to you by ID Quantique.
We begin with the exciting announcement that our quantum chip has been integrated in the Vsmart Aris 5G smartphone, enhancing the safety and security of user data.
Next, we explore at how SIG, Geneva’s utility company, has secured its critical datacentre interconnection with leading edge quantum cryptography from IDQ.
We then look at all the latest industry news, developments and hot topics in our 2020 Q2 quantum computing industry review.
Finally, we invite you to the upcoming QCrypt virtual event, where we’ll give a talk on QRNG and QKD.
Enjoy the reading and stay healthy!
ID Quantique integrates its quantum chip in Vsmart Aris 5G smartphone
The Quantis QRNG security chip embedded in Vsmart Aris 5G uses quantum physics principles to create truly random and totally unpredictable sequences of numbers.
This enhances the safety and security of user data on the phone, especially sensitive data such as banking, medical or personal finance information. It delivers a unique differentiation by providing a much higher level of trust to users, and is the basis for new revenue streams especially in combination with e-sim and quantum secured datacenters.
SIG secures critical datacentre interconnection thanks to IDQ quantum cryptography
Geneva’s utility company, together with IDQ and ADVA, announce the implementation of the first quantum encrypted datacentre interconnection.
SIG’s quantum link will ensure long-term data security, mitigating cybersecurity risks in the post-quantum era. Read the use case here.
