London, United Kingdom, September 08, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- London-based quantum and mobile security start-up Crypta Labs has published a Case Study detailing the company’s progress to date, and future plans, in their mission to secure the Internet of Things through enhanced encryption.
The Case Study (which can be accessed via the link) and which is titled ‘Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG) Microchip for Secure Communications’, has been published to highlight the company’s innovative work in the field of quantum encryption after receiving funding from the Centre for Defence Enterprise and explains;
Data encryption relies on random numbers to encrypt and decrypt confidential communication. Using the quantum properties of light, the aim is to develop a Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG) as an easy, cheap and unbreakable (military-grade) encryption solution.
Crypta Labs has so far produced a data processing algorithm to transform raw data from a sensor into random bit stream and has tested this on a sensor module; the next step is a prototype (to be miniaturised into a microchip), and to integrate the optimised working parameters of sensors with the processing algorithm.
Joe Luong, CEO, Crypta Labs says, “I’m so pleased that we are able to publish this Case Study into our innovative work on quantum random number generation - we are the only company, which we know of, commercialising a QRNG on a mobile device and the CDE funding we received allowed us to work on this breakthrough research. The CDE has given us the credibility and traction we needed to secure outside investment.”
