QB provides simple, small, provably secure quantum security devices that can fit onto any surface or within any device.
Quantum Base - a world leader in Quantum Security; the solutions of the future will be fortified by our world leading innovation.
We have invented a suite of products providing authentication, identification and security across communications networks, devices and products. Our quantum identities (Q-ID’s) use the unique arrangements of atoms and the imperfections in these structures to create devices, which are simple, small and cheap. They have the highest bit density, the best integration potential and use the least amount of resources possible; furthermore they can be easily inserted into existing standard CMOS or III-V manufacturing processes. The products can be used independently to provided authentication and identification, or can be deployed within existing solution architectures, harnessing the benefits that quantum technologies bring.
They offer the ultimate in provable security, have low power usage, the smallest footprint possible, have low bandwidth requirements and all without the need for large scale computations, the accompanying infrastructure or processing requirements.
Physically unclonable functions (PUF’s) are an emerging technology for the secure provision of public (security) keys. They provide unique information derived from random physical characteristics, and have many advantages over conventional passwords or software keys in public key cryptography. But despite their obvious advantages, existing classical PUF technologies are often expensive, large, can be difficult to implement or are potentially susceptible to sophisticated attacks.
The electronic solution can be embedded in a microprocessor to provide a unique fingerprint for authentication and encryption, and is suitable for direct integration into simple semiconductor devices.
The optical solution can be read using a standard smart phone and a cheap filter. The optical device uses two dimensional “graphene like” sheets, and because each device has a unique identity, each one can be addressed individually and directly using Internet or new media technologies.
In addition to the suite outlined above, we have developed a Quantum lock, and we are continuing to build a portfolio of products that can be used independently or together in networked environments, using cutting edge quantum physics and two dimensional “graphene like” materials, that use off the shelf equipment, operating at room temperature and on a Nano scale, that has no incremental cost once volume production is achieved.
Global product Authentication
Figures released in 2016 by the OECD and the EU Intellectual Property Office state that imports of all counterfeit and pirated goods globally are worth nearly half a trillion U.S. dollars; across such diverse verticals as automotive, aerospace, fashion, sports, technology, foodstuffs, and pharmaceuticals. Those technologies deemed to be at the heart of stopping counterfeiting are not working.
In a world’s first, Quantum Base has developed a Quantum physically unclonable function (Q PUF) the quantum identity or (Q-ID) using “Quantum Mechanical Tunnelling”. With this we have:
• Created unique physical quantum ‘signatures’, which can be read with a standard smart phone and cheap filter, this is at the core of our identification and authentication technology.
• Overcome the security failings of existing security systems such holograms, PUF’s such as SRAM or Delay PUFs, which rely on measurement of physical properties in existing circuitry, rendering them susceptible to sophisticated attacks.
• Developed a PUF based device, our Q-IDs, which cannot be copied, cloned or simulated: the laws of quantum physics guarantee this.
Global Data Security: In one example of data security issues, Business Insider (2017) suggests that the number of IoT devices could top 24 billion globally by 2020. McKinsey advocate this market to be valued at $6bn, while CISCO state this figure could be closer to $14bn and 50 billion devises. Either way, the Vormetric Data Threat report (2016) concluded that the protection of sensitive data ranked as the top concern (36%) among IoT enterprises. Regardless of this meteoric growth in IoT, there is still no existing 100% security protection for this mass connectivity across business, government and individual consumers (Business Insider 2017).
To counter this, we deploy our suite of products: the Q-ID’s or Quantum Identities, various Quantum Random Number Generators (RNG) and RNG+, and Quantum Lock.
Quantum Base, securing your connected future, providing provable security, guaranteed by the laws of physics.
