Quantis QRNG Chip Receives Highest Certification

At the International Cryptographic Module Conference (ICMC23), ID Quantique (IDQ) announced that its Quantis QRNG chips have just received NIST ESV certification (see Certificate #63) on the Independent and Identically Distributed (IID) entropy estimation track.  This certification offers the highest attainable security and robustness level for the generation of random bits. It makes IDQ’s range of QRNG chips ideal for … Continue reading

OISL vs RF Links for Satcom Constellations

Optical technologies are increasingly central to the growth of satellite communication constellations. These technologies not only facilitate diverse satellite networks and ground-to-satellite connections, but also promise enhanced anti-interference through space laser communication’s narrow beam property. Bridging the gap between varying optical networks, optical format conversion technologies come into play. Among these, Optical Inter-Satellite Links (OISLs) … Continue reading

Experimental Demonstration of Quantum Weak Coin Flipping

In work recently published in Nature Communications, researchers from Sorbonne Université, the University of Vienna, California Institute of Technology and Université de Paris have, for the first time, experimentally demonstrated quantum weak coin flipping — a cryptographic primitive which allows two mistrustful parties to agree on a random bit when they favor opposite outcomes. The … Continue reading
