Q uantum computing is far from its final form, but huge leaps forward are taken, the reveal made last October by Crypto Quantique making us all anxious at the thought of how our future will look when it comes to Internet of Things devices. The announce of this launch is all the more exciting as the solution includes the first QDSC on silicon that, in combination with cryptographic APIs, delivers easy to execute end-to-end security for all connected devices.
Differing from classic computing greatly and with a high potential to find insights based on inexistent data, the prospective to improve security through quantum physics exists and opens up doors we found to be of the science fiction real before.
The QDSC, which stands short for quantum-driven secure chip averts cloning as it is distinctive to every device, generating cryptographic keys that are tamperproof through the use of quantum processes in silicon nano-devices, which makes hacking almost impossible. As advanced technologies in cryptography and quantum physics are used, the keys won’t have to be stored on the device as they will be called on demand, eliminating the possibility of sensitive information leaks or secure storage requirements.
