QuantiCor Security is a company of Darmstadt’s Digital Hub for Cyber Security. It emerged from the Technische Universität Darmstadt with a very innovative concept. QuantiCor Security is the leading provider of quantum computer resistant security solutions. It is now a partner (leading actor from industry) of the renowned Quantum Internet Alliance (QIA).
Nearly all security systems applied today such as encryption technologies and digital signatures can efficiently be broken by quantum computers due to Shor’s quantum algorithm. Thus, current IT-security infrastructures lose all protection immediately. The consequences are desastrous. All data such as health care, DNA and financial data or other sensible information can be read and manipulated by an adversary. Online banking and online shopping as well as secure emails are inconceivable without an appropriate replacement.
QuantiCor Security as the leader in its field develops and offers the next generation of security solutions (for IoT) that are resistant even against powerful quantum computer attacks.
QuantiCor’s security technologies for use in ordinary devices can immediately replace currently applied security mechanisms in order to ensure confidentiality, integrity and authenticity of data even in a post-quantum world.
As another product, QuantiCor developed Quantum-IDEncrypt, a unique and highly innovative encryption technology that is particularly designed for IoT. Currently applied systems suffer from an expensive, complex, inefficient, and nonscaleable public key infrastructure (PKI) which is completely unsuitable for IoT applications. With QuantiCor’s novel and unique approach, a PKI is completely avoided based on an innovative concept from science. Thus, by this novelty more than 70% of the costs are saved. In addition to its quantum computer security it is highly efficient and highly scaleable for billions of devices. Certificates need not to be issued, stored or validated any more. An identity management system further allows to manage identities such as persons or devices and the associated cryptographic keys.
QuantiCor Security further offers Quantum-Multisign that allows to authenticate or sign contracts, services, transactions by a group of persons (e.g. employees such as CFO and CEO) via a flexible policy and in a quantum computer resistant way. Only if the policy is satisfied contracts become valid and transactions are carried out.
