Quantum Xchange & ID Quantique Celebrate One-Year Anniversary of Commercially Viable QKD-Secured Links

By IQT News posted 25 Jul 2019

(FinanceYahoo) Quantum Xchange, provider of the first quantum key distribution (QKD) network in the U.S. and ID Quantique, the world leader in quantum-safe security solutions, celebrate the one-year anniversary of their exclusive U.S. partnership, providing commercially viable QKD-secured links across the Phio network.
Launched in June 2018, Phio™ by Quantum Xchange is the first quantum-secure network in the United States and features ID Quantique’s third-generation QKD equipment. In stark contrast to current public-key cryptography protocols for secure data transmission, which are rooted in mathematical algorithms and inherently breakable, Phio relies on the fundamental properties of quantum mechanics to physically transfer a shared secret between two entities. Thanks to a photon’s multiple quantum states and immunity from observation and manipulation, wrapping an encryption key with a photonic quantum key prevents the transmission from being unknowingly interrupted, corrupted, cloned, or exposed — creating a superior, next-generation solution for mission-critical data security.
