Quantum computers will fundamentally change how organizations secure their most sensitive data
Shor’s algorithm published in 1994 uses a quantum computer to factor an integer N into its prime number factors. It proves that what once took eons to compute will only take seconds. Large prime numbers that form the underpinnings of today’s public-private key encryption protocols, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) will be easily and quickly factored by quantum computers leaving mission-critical data exposed and at risk.
The computing and threat landscape continues to evolve and change
As technology heavyweights like IBM and Google race for quantum supremacy, nation-state actors and cybercriminals are stockpiling encrypted data now, to be deciphered later by quantum computers. This means that critical, SSL-protected data taken during breaches like Yahoo, OPM, and Equifax is vulnerable to exploitation.
Organizations without a well-articulated, quantum-risk management plan will begin to lose business, confidence, and trust to organizations that do.
With Quantum Xchange’s Quantum-safe key exchange, you avoid:
SSL scraping attacks
Potential backdoors and yet-to-be-discovered vulnerabilities
Quantum-computing nullification of public/private encryption key transfer methods
Why Quantum-Safe Key Distribution?
There is a solution, available today
It does not require ripping and replacing existing encryption solutions, and it enables enterprises to build a dynamic, crypto-agile network that can easily scale to meet current needs while preparing for quantum cryptography at any time.
Phio by Quantum Xchange allows enterprises to deploy quantum-safe key distribution across their existing network and crypto infrastructure. By selecting a level of protection based on their individual risk tolerance and resource availabilities, organizations can start simple, then grow as the need arises by layering in Quantum Key Distribution (QKD).
