Toshiba to Share Challenges & Opportunities of Quantum Key Distribution in Upcoming Singapore Presentation
(IT.NewsOnline) Taro Shimada, Executive Officer and Corporate Senior Vice President, and Chief Digital Officer, Toshiba Corporation, will share about the challenges and opportunities of quantum key distribution to protect critical information and potentially enable disruptive technologies, giving birth to the quantum internet era during an upcoming presentation at an upcoming supercomputing/Asia event.
Toshiba is collaborating with Singapore’s SpeQtral to help governments and enterprises learn, consider, plan and deploy quantum key distribution solutions for quantum secure communication network in Southeast Asia. Singapore has identified cybersecurity as one of the key drivers in accelerating digital transformation. As digital economies emerge from the acceleration of technological adoption, integration of emerging telecommunications infrastructures and deployment of 5G networks, quantum key distribution is an important factor to realize safe data communications.
Toshiba’s quantum key distribution is a solution to address this imminent need for data protection. Quantum key distribution applies the laws of physics and quantum mechanics to generate an un-hackable crypto algorithm, preventing cyberattacks where cybercriminals steal customer’s data and intellectual property. Using photons of light to physically transfer confidential data between entities, this technology enables safe transfer of information with real time detection of unauthorized attempts to intercept, access or corrupt data.
