Quantum key delivery technique claims commercial viability
Quantum cryptography startup Quantum Xchange (Bethesda, MD) has announced a quantum key delivery technique that it claims makes existing encryption infrastructure quantum-safe.
which provides quantum-safe encryption over unlimited distances - in the U.S. in June 2018, and currently offers a collection of products and services for cyber-aware organizations and government agencies looking to be quantum ready, crypto agile, and resistant to quantum attack. Products can be used individually, or as a managed service, and now include the following:
  • Phio QK (Quantum Keys): Quantum Xchange's unbreakable key exchange using photons of light that can't be cloned, interrupted, or altered in any way. QKD is the only provably secure and absolute method for sharing a secret key between two entities, using quantum mechanics instead of electronic bits to transmit encryption keys.
  • Phio TX (Trusted Xchange): The patent-pending, out-of-band key delivery technology that enables encrypted, fault-tolerant and load-balanced point-to-multipoint transmissions across any distance. The encryption and key generation work together with QKD if desired, delivering a dynamic, future-proof solution.
  • Phio Fiber Network: 1,000 kilometers of existing optical fiber and 19 co-location centers along the Boston to Washington route from strategic infrastructure partner Zayo Group. The first quantum-ready fiber network in the U.S. runs from Washington, D.C., to New York City and onto Boston, including key connections to the financial markets on Wall Street with back office operations in New Jersey.

The company says that it plans to extend its Phio fiber network nationwide over the next 12 months.
