Today, we are reaching a paradigm shift: the quantum threat forces us to fundamentally rethink our cryptography. Increased geopolitical and commercial pressure, technological advancements and malicious actors are putting our data confidentiality and sovereignty at risk.
In a world where the quantum threat will render current public key cryptography obsolete, and bring long-term uncertainty to the next generation of post-quantum algorithms, we leverage quantum technologies to protect data and communications, keeping society, businesses and people safe now and in the long-term future.
Internet will never be the same. A quantum computer’s ability to solve complex problems like factorization means that it will also have the power to break keys – the same keys that we rely on to protect our cryptographic systems.
In fact, quantum computers pose a very real threat to data security today. The long-term value of much of today’s data means it is vulnerable to a ‘download now, decrypt later’ attack, where cyber criminals steal data and store it for decryption when quantum computers become available.
As quantum computing matures, organizations must move towards a quantum-safe stance to protect themselves and ensure business continuity. This will likely require the adoption of multiple technologies and approaches.
Quantum Key Distribution and Quantum Random Number Generation provide the cornerstone of a long-term quantum-safe strategy.
Migrating to a quantum-secure stance is no trivial task. As the migration time is the only thing we control, it is crucial not to allow a lack of internal expertise and overwhelming complexity expose you to important liabilities.
Any cryptographic system is only as secure as the encryption keys it uses. The first step towards good data protection is therefore to start with good keys. The security of the keys is determined by the degree of randomness (entropy) used to generate them.
For a source of genuine and provable entropy, cryptographic systems are leveraging quantum random number generators, which rely on the non-deterministic character of quantum mechanics to generate entropy.
