Integrating Quantum-Safe Security with existing encryption solutions

ID Quantique works with different network encryption solutions which may be upgraded with Quantum Key Distribution (QKD), which is also known as quantum cryptography, to be Quantum-Safe.

Securing your critical assets can be done in various ways, with various techniques. Adding a QKD layer to your infrastructure today ensures you get a quick start towards quantum-safe security.

As long as your existing infrastructure allows it, having a joint approach with one of our technology partners protects any kind of investment you have made so far.

Overlaying ID Quantique’s Quantum Key Distribution is simpler than you may think and delivers a number of benefits, including:


Our technology collaborations

ADVA Optical Networking

Optical Transport Encryption with ADVA

The latest production release of ADVA’s FSP 3000 scalable optical transport platform offers a dedicated commercial-grade interface based on the ETSI key delivery standard for key distribution.

The combination of the FSP 3000 ConnectGuard™ Optical Layer 1 encryption with IDQ’s QKD provides long-term security for critical data transported over optical networks. QKD is added as an extra layer of security on top of the encryption taking place at Layer 1 to protect data at all layers.

Juniper Networks Quantum-Safe MACsec

To uncover the practical implications of using QKD to secure MACsec-based VPN traffic, Deutsche Telekom, ID Quantique, and Juniper Networks codeveloped a proof of concept (PoC) to validate a quantum-safe MACsec implementation.

They successfully tested the REST-API defined by ETSI in a multivendor environment between a pair of QKD devices and a pair of firewalls featuring MACsec encryption.

Packetlight Networks QKD

PacketLight Layer 1 encryption featuring QKD

PacketLight’s Layer-1 encryption ensures the confidentiality and integrity of data transmitted over fiber optic networks. The solution is based on GCM-AES-256 encryption standards, and uses Diffie-Hellman (DH) Elliptic Curve Key Exchange algorithm with P-384 curve and SHA-384 authentication.

The emergence of quantum computers may require reinforcing the key exchange with a method that is not breakable even with these highly sophisticated computers. QKD meets this demand by ensuring that highly secure and unbreakable encryption keys are shared between the parties, safeguarding their communication with quantum-level protection.
