Key Facts

  • Point-to-point protocol that uses specialized hardware to share secret keys over an optical link
  • Secrecy of the keys is guaranteed by the laws of quantum physics
  • Offers CV-QKD technology with built-in advantages in terms of cost, form factor, and performance

Product Description

Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) is a point-to-point protocol that uses specialised hardware to share secret keys over an optical link (fibre or freespace). Secrecy of the keys is guaranteed by the laws of quantum physics— the system continuously estimates the maximum amount of information that could have been obtained by an eavesdropper, and only outputs keys when it can exploit an information advantage.

QuintessenceLabs offers CV-QKD technology with built-in advantages in terms of cost, form factor, and performance:

  • Performance: The use of coherent signal encoding enables high throughputs that are not limited by single-photon generation or detection. Moreover it allows for daylight operation over free space optical links
  • Cost: Compatibility with current telecommunication technologies, such as telecommunication encoding, transmission and detection techniques, as well as the ability to use standard fiber connections, allow for cost effective systems.
