Optical Power Limiter Pushes Attack-Proof Quantum Communication Forward

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
SINGAPORE, July 19, 2021 — Researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) developed two methods to enable quantum key distribution (QKD) communications to avoid side-channel attacks — instances in which attackers exploit weaknesses in the setup of the information system to eavesdrop on the exchange of secret keys. QKD is a method for secure communication that uses quantum mechanics to encrypt information. While the security of QKD is unbreakable in principle, if it is incorrectly implemented, vital information could still be stolen by attackers. The first method, which the researchers say...Read full article
