InfoSec Global and ID Quantique Collaborate on Quantum-Powered Crypto-Agile VPN for Wide Area Communications
Switzerland, 25 October 2018 -- InfoSec Global (ISG) and ID Quantique today announced a collaboration that for the first time delivers a Quantum-Safe VPN, including cryptographic agility and Quantum Random Number Generation (QRNG).
ISG’s Agilesec VPN is an enterprise-ready VPN which allows customers to protect their networks with trusted sovereign or custom cryptographic algorithms along with the strongest internationally standardised cryptography. Agilesec VPN also enables the secure upgrade of already-deployed networks to next generation quantum-resistant (post quantum) cryptographic primitives any time in the future. Agilesec VPN already includes such post-quantum cryptography implementations, making quantum-safe wide area network deployments a reality.
The solution combines the best of ISG’s cryptographic agility with IDQ’s Quantis Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG) for stronger encryption inside one single device. The Quantis QRNG card from ID Quantique is at the heart of the system, generating the seed material for the encryption algorithms and also for authentication between devices. Quantum physics is the only theory within the fabric of modern physics that integrates randomness. IDQuantique’s Quantis QRNG harnesses this fundamental randomness to generate truly (provably) random numbers. It also has the advantage over other conventional randomness sources in being invulnerable to environment perturbations and by allowing live status verification. IDQ’s QRNG has been certified by leading institutes and governments worldwide, including according to the stringent AIS31 standard for the German BSI.
The collaboration between the two companies delivers a quantum-powered crypto agile Layer 3 VPN solution to customers to ensure data integrity and confidentiality for today and tomorrow’s evolving data environment.
“This partnership enables our companies to jointly provide a unique quantum-powered crypto agile solution in a ready to use and powerful VPN for wide area networks. said Nagy Moustafa, CEO and co-founder of ISG
“This complements our range of existing quantum-safe security solutions, allowing us to offer a broader range of options to address new threats from upcoming quantum computers and the increase in constantly evolving cyber attacks.” said Grégoire Ribordy, CEO of ID Quantique.
