Using quantum technologies to increase the security of digital communications and information networks is known as quantum-enhanced cybersecurity.
In terms of its ability to rapidly resolve specific types of mathematical problems that are challenging or impossible for classical computers to solve, quantum computing offers a distinct advantage over classical computing.
This benefit can be used to create new cryptographic algorithms that are safer than the ones in use today. For instance, the quantum key distribution (QKD) method creates secure keys for data encryption and decryption using the ideas of quantum physics.
Because any effort to intercept the key would result in it being irreversibly changed, unlike traditional key exchange methods, QKD offers unconditional security by warning the communicating parties of the intrusion.
Post-quantum cryptography, which involves creating new cryptographic algorithms that are resistant to attacks by quantum computers, and quantum random number generation, which can be used to produce truly random numbers for use in cryptographic protocols, are other quantum-enhanced cryptographic techniques.
Overall, quantum-enhanced cybersecurity holds great promise for enhancing our digital systems’ security and defending against possible cyberthreats in the future. To completely comprehend the potential and constraints of quantum technologies in this context, more research is required because it is still an emerging field.
Global Quantum-enhanced cybersecurity market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
In order to create cryptographic keys seeded with verifiable quantum randomness from Quantinuum’s H-Series quantum computers, Cambridge Quantum has introduced Quantum Origin, a platform for quantum-enhanced cryptographic key generation.
The platform supports post-quantum cryptography algorithms that are presently being standardised by the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST), as well as conventional algorithms like RSA or AES. Companies in the finance and cybersecurity sectors can now access the service.
QuProtect, the first end-to-end quantum software-based platform in the market, was released by QuSecure. It is intended to safeguard encrypted conversations and data using a zero-trust, next-generation encryption, active monitoring, and attack remediation approach.
The platform is a workable post-quantum defence solution that is cloud-delivered in software to existing devices over existing infrastructure.
Space-grade goods from ID Quantique have recently been released, making them perfect for enhancing space designs with quantum-enhanced security. Future-proofing satellite security against new dangers and technologies by integrating quantum random number generators (QRNGs) is currently possible.
To defend against quantum cyberattacks that can quickly decrypt current encryption, QuintessenceLabs provides quantum key distribution, generation, and administration. The business seeks to defend against the danger that encrypted data and organisations are currently facing from quantum computing.
