In the realm of cybersecurity, Qrypt is a company based in the United States that specializes in quantum security solutions. One of its unique offerings is the provision of quantum random numbers through the cloud, an initiative that has been undertaken by only a few companies, with Qrypt being the only one to offer this service on American soil.
Randomness is a crucial component in the development of secure encryption. However, generating true randomness is not an easy task, and usually requires complex and expensive machines that are primarily used for military or financial data transactions.
To overcome this challenge, companies and institutions have developed Entropy as a Service (EaaS), a cloud-based solution that enables the accessibility of quantum random numbers, thereby providing a pathway to the future of quantum secure encryption.
Qrypt’s quantum random number generator (QRNG) was recently launched in partnership with the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in Tennessee. The QRNG generates quantum random numbers that are then transferred to the cloud every hour.
These numbers are utilized to independently generate one-time pads and symmetric keys at multiple endpoints. Qrypt’s patented encryption methods ensure that the risks of exploitation, eavesdropping, and data harvesting are eliminated.
