Industry adopts Quantum-Safe Encryption

It is disheartening to watch the global crisis these days.  Nevertheless, it is critical we address today’s encryption and IronCAP™ wants to educate people about the importance of cybersecurity, now more than ever.

Cyberattacks often spiked with military actions. The risk of cyberattacks now is very high and rising.  A slew of hackings have occurred in just the past two months. Recent victims include Samsung, gaming giant UbiSoft and the world’s largest GPU producer, Nvidia. Some analysts claimed that the Nvidia hack was a “national security disaster”.  In fact, every country is on high alert for cyberattacks now.  They are watching not only attacks posed by classical computers but also those posed by quantum computers.  They definitely need to ramp up their cyber defenses.

You may think that commercial quantum computers are still far away.  Well, you will realize you are wrong if you go on to read.  As per reports from March 4th 2022, The White House is concerned over the threat raised by post-quantum computing.  It recently released a National Security Memorandum which have huge implications for quantum technology and quantum security for the world.  Specifically, it instructs the National Security Agency (NSA) to update the Commercial National Security Algorithm Suite (CNSA Suite) and to transition their systems to use compliant and quantum-resistant cryptography. 

For the last 6 years our world-renowned team of crypto scientists have been working on a unique, Goppa code-based cryptographic encryption that has obtained a patent, backed by industry leaders and emerged unscathed in two global hackathons (2019 and 2020 respectively). More importantly IronCAP™ is available today!  It operates on classical computers and is quantum-safe, protecting your data from cyberattacks coming from quantum computers as well as classical computers.

We at IronCAP™ have been trying to educate businesses and individuals that Q-day (the day the first quantum hack is publicly recognized) is around the corner and everybody needs to gear up. Nation states and governments are already at it, how about you?
