Infotecs At The Forefront Of Quantum Cryptography

Share Article

Infotecs has developed technology that enables key management for quantum computing.

Our cryptographers have been working intensively since autumn 2016 on the development of a post-quantum cryptography solution to provide our customers with encryption technology that meets future requirements for secure, encrypted communications.

Infotecs, an internationally known IT security and threat intelligence provider, is developing quantum encryption technology to exchange encryption keys at very high data volumes.

Quantum computing has the potential to revolutionize modern computing by attaining computing speeds previously thought impossible. However, computing that is significantly faster would also make it easy to break many of today’s encryption techniques. One reason for this is that if encryption keys are used too frequently, attackers can find statistical patterns that allow decryption of the data. The solution to that problem is to change keys very frequently—sometimes as much as several times per second.

Infotecs has invested roughly 4.8 million dollars over three years in the development of a post-quantum cryptography (PQK) technology that manages key exchange. Infotecs, in cooperation with international scientific institutions, is working to develop a marketable, efficient, but affordable solution for the construction of a secure quantum data network.

"The IT security sector is facing an extremely difficult challenge because of increasingly high-performance computer systems," comments Aleksandr Tkachev, General Manager of Infotecs Americas. "Our cryptographers have been working intensively since autumn 2016 on the development of a post-quantum cryptography solution to provide our customers with a market-ready encryption technology that meets the changing future requirements for secure, encrypted communication."

About Infotecs
As a leading international IT security provider and an experienced specialist in software-based VPN solutions, Infotecs has been developing peer-to-peer ViPNet technology since 1991 to provide more security, flexibility and efficiency than other security products that are common to the market. The ViPNet Security and Threat Intelligence Platform provides complete security for all enterprise environments in a single cost-effective solution. As the only technology, ViPNet supports real point-to-point security and is therefore considered highly secure. The encryption solution is scalable, flexible, and easy to implement and manage. ViPNet can also be seamlessly integrated into existing network infrastructures, enabling customers to find the right balance between high security, low complexity and low risk. More than 1,000,000 endpoints, company locations and servers have been securely connected to each other using ViPNet - supported by experienced crypto specialists from our IT development and support team, as well as a strong network of partners.
