Cybersecurity is a continual arms race between attackers and defenders, and the world of encryption is no exception. Whitewood develops technology that applies quantum mechanics to the problem of generating perfect (i.e. unguessable) random numbers for use in encryption and other types of cryptography.
Using quantum entropy to help generate true random numbers for encryption keys represents a rare opportunity for defenders to get ahead of the game for existing applications.
Features and benefits:
- Describes the importance of and challenges related to generating true random numbers.
- Explains how quantum mechanics can help in this scenario.
- What risks will quantum computers represent for IT security?
- What is entropy and why is it important in encryption key generation?
