ADVA announced that it is playing a key role in a unique research initiative extending post-quantum security to VPN networks. Leveraging the ADVA FSP 150 with ConnectGuard Ethernet encryption, the Quantum-Secure VPN Modules and Operation Modes (QuaSiModO) project is testing new quantum-resistant algorithms in the packet domain.
It will develop viable security solutions that can protect Layer 2 and 3 data against all forms of cyberattack, including those from quantum computers. By participating in the initiative, ADVA is extending its industry-leading work with quantum-safe cryptography in optical transport to higher network layers.
Other QuaSiModO project partners are the Fraunhofer Institute of Applied and Integrated Security, the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and genua GmbH.
“As part of the QuaSiModO project, we’re continuing to drive innovation in future-proof cryptography. This initiative extends comprehensive post-quantum security to VPNs and enables businesses and government institutions to protect their data from tomorrow’s attacks,” said Jörg-Peter Elbers, SVP, advanced technology, ADVA.
