QuEST: Quantum Era Security Times November 2017

Welcome to the latest edition of the Quantum Era Security Times, brought to you by ID Quantique, the world leader in quantum-safe cryptography solutions.

In our latest press releases, we celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the world’s first real-life quantum cryptography installation by IDQ and introduce the new Quantum RNG Chip – the world’s smallest QRNG.

Also this month, we are pleased to share IDQ’s paper, written for DefTech (Armasuisse), revealing how the emergence of new quantum technologies will impact IoT cryptographic security.

Finally, regular readers will be pleased to see that the Quantum Technologies Flagship Final Report is now available to download, so don’t forget to get your copy!

Best regards,

IDQ Celebrates 10-Year Anniversary of the World’s First Real-Life Quantum Cryptography Installation

10 years ago the State of Geneva in Switzerland installed quantum cryptography to protect its elections.

It was the first ever deployment of a commercial quantum cryptography system. A decade later, Geneva is still using the system to protect the integrity of its elections.

Introducing the Quantum RNG Chip with SK Telecom

ID Quantique introduces the world’s smallest true Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG) Chip, developed by our partners SK Telecom.

The Quantum RNG chip represents a breakthrough in technology. The use of low-cost, off-the-shelf components, such as a CMOS image sensor, LED and ASIC, has allowed for significant miniaturization. The Quantum RNG Chip is ideal for applications that require a compact size, low cost, low power consumption and resistance to external environment perturbation.
