The new quantum communication chip is 1000 times smaller than modern quantum devices, but it works just as efficiently.
Most current safety standardsCommunication systems used in ATMs or when making online purchases do not use quantum technologies. Therefore, there is currently a threat of interception of a PIN code or password during electronic data transfer.
Researchers from Nanyang Technological University have developed a chip less than 4 mm long that uses quantum communication algorithms. to increase transaction security. This is achieved by integrating passwords into the transmitted information to create a secure quantum key. After receiving the data, they are destroyed along with the key, which further increases the reliability of such a connection.
The system uses randomized lines of code.to encrypt information that only the recipient with the correct key can access. This simplifies communication, as there is no need to transfer additional passwords or biometric data.
The developers claim that the use of suchThe chips will be cost effective since they are made from available materials such as silicon. The invention can also stimulate the creation of next-generation communication devices and improve digital services, such as online banking, digital government.
Earlier, European researchers introduced another version of the chip for protecting information systems, which generates random numbers by firing a tiny laser at one of two targets.</p>
