Quantum Random Generator

Quantum Random Numbers Future-Proof Encryption

Three universities chose to build and license quantum random number generators.

It may be a decade or more before quantum computers become common enough that we’ll find out whether “post-quantum cryptography” will stand up to genuine quantum computers.

In the meantime, some quantum researchers are peeling off specific functions and turning them into products or companies so that it’s possible to take advantage of the potential of quantum computers without actually having access to one.

It’s not a coincidence that three universities chose to build and license quantum random number generators. Good, truly random numbers make possible encryption strong enough that it might even stand up to other quantum computers. Random number generation is the foundation of a solid technology and a good early starting point for researchers building task-specific quantum computing devices from Los Alamos National Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Lancaster University in the U.K.
