ID Quantique (IDQ), the world leader in quantum-safe security solutions, today announced that its newest Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG) chip has been integrated in the ‘Vsmart Aris 5G’ smartphone.
ID Quantique’s Quantis QRNG security chip embedded in Vsmart Aris 5G uses quantum physics principles to create truly random and totally unpredictable sequences of numbers which enhances the safety and security of user data on the phone, especially sensitive data such as banking, medical or personal finance information. It delivers a unique differentiation by providing a much higher level of trust to users, and is the basis for new revenue streams especially in combination with e-sim and quantum secured datacenters.
“With its compact size and low power consumption, our latest Quantis QRNG chip can be embedded in a smartphone to ensure trusted authentication and encryption of sensitive information. It brings a new level of security to the mobile phone industry. This is truly the first mass market application of quantum technologies.”
Grégoire Ribordy, CEO and co-founder of ID Quantique
