QRNG’s make hardware quantum resilient – by CEO Jon Maliepaard
In recent years, there has been a growing concern about the security of our digital infrastructure in the face of quantum computing. Quantum computers are still in their early stages of development, but they have the potential to break many of the encryption algorithms that we rely on to protect our data. Upgrading systems to have quantum random number generators (QRNG’s) onboard is the first step to making the hardware quantum resilient.
One way to mitigate this risk is to integrate hardware quantum random number generators (QRNGs) into computer hardware. QRNGs produce truly random numbers, which are essential for generating strong encryption keys.
The White House just last year issued a strong warning about the importance of “Mitigating risks to vulnerable cryptographic systems”. You can read the whole paper here.
There are a number of companies that are developing QRNGs, including Crypta Labs. We have developed a QRNG that is based on the principle of quantum photonics (photon counting). This technology is very robust and reliable, as it can produce truly random numbers at very high speeds.
In addition to being secure, QRNGs are also very easy to integrate into IoT devices. Crypta Labs offers a number of different QRNG modules that can be easily added to existing systems.
The integration of QRNGs into computer hardware is essential to protecting our digital infrastructure from the threat of quantum computing. By taking this step, we can help to ensure that our data remains secure for years to come.
Benefits of Hardware Quantum Random Number Generation
There are a number of benefits to using hardware QRNGs. First, they are much more secure than software PRNGs. Software PRNGs are based on deterministic algorithms, which means that they can be predicted by an attacker with enough computing power. QRNGs, on the other hand, produce truly random numbers, which are impossible to predict.
Second, QRNGs are much faster than TRNG’s. This is important for applications that require a high-speed stream of random numbers, such as cryptography and gaming.
Third, QRNGs are more resistant to environmental noise. This is important for applications that need to generate random numbers in a EMF noisy environment, such as a data centre.
The Ease of Modifying Computer Hardware to Attain Quantum Resilience
The integration of QRNGs into computer hardware is relatively easy. In most cases, it can be done by simply adding a QRNG module to the system via an expansion board. Crypta Labs have developed in line with popular and trusted protocols.
In many cases the integration of QRNGs does not require any changes to the existing architecture of the system. This means that it can be done without disrupting the operation of the system, or having to change any existing software.
