Quantum Random Number Generators: cheaper, faster and more secure

Project description

Generating quantum random numbers

What does cryptography have in common with video games and computer simulations? The answer is random numbers. It is important in all these cases that the generated numbers are truly unpredictable. For instance, breaches of cryptographic protocols are usually caused by weaknesses in random number generation. In this context, the EU-funded QRANGE project will push the quantum random number generation (QRNG) technology further, allowing for a wide range of commercial applications. The project will build prototypes such as a fully integrated low-cost QRNG device based on standard CMOS technology, another that is high-speed, and a self-testing QRNG device. The project will also work together with the competent institutions towards a full certification scheme of QRNG devices compliant with the highest security standards.
