Quantum-Driven Hardware Security Solution Addresses End-to-End IoT Protection

Nov. 28, 2021
Crypto Quantique created a secure end-to-end IoT Cybersecurity platform using quantum-driven semiconductor hardware IP.

Crypto Quantique created what they claim as the world’s most secure end-to-end IoT security platform. At its heart is the first quantum-driven semiconductor hardware IP, called QDID, that generates multiple, unique, unforgeable cryptographic keys for devices manufactured using standard CMOS processes. The keys do not need to be stored, and can be used independently by multiple applications on demand. Combined with cryptographic APIs from the company’s universal IoT security platform, QuarkLink, the solution creates a secure bridge between silicon, device, and software.

The company, which is based in London, UK, was co-founded by Dr Shahram Mossayebi (CEO), an expert in cryptosystems, and Dr Patrick Camilleri (VP Research & Innovation), a semiconductor designer with significant experience in complex parallel computer systems. We sat down with Dr Shahram Mossayebi to get a better handle on what this means for the engineering community.
