Ensuring that our communications, data storage and data transmissions are secure is essential for the world we live in today: it lets us keep up with our loved ones, do business and even run governments with the privacy we need. But with quantum computing about to become more available in the near future, keeping technology secure will be even more of a priority — and an even bigger challenge.
Today, we rely on computers to generate seemly random numbers to send encrypted data and communications that only the recipient can decode. But numbers generated by machines can’t be truly random, and quantum computers will be able to spot those patterns easily.
Quantum computing will soon bring countless benefits to our day-to-day lives, but it will also bring new risks to our existing security systems. To guarantee trustworthy encryption, we need truly random numbers. And there is only one route to true randomness: quantum mechanics.
Our family of Quantum Random Number Generators (QRNGs) is optimized to provide more speed, scalability and true randomness at a fraction of the cost of other devices in the market. Our innovative and patented solution uses a purely quantum solution called quantum tunneling to generate truly random numbers.
QNG2 is the first Quantum Random Number Generator in the market the size of an integrated circuit. It’s small enough to be used in consumer electronics, while still being more powerful than any other product out there.
Quantum eMotion OEM partners will have access to our development tools, reference design and support so they can develop their own integrated circuit with hardware encryption based on our QNG2 technology.
QNG2 will provide guaranteed security to all facets of future life, including mobile and internet transactions, IoT communication, machine-to-machine connections, networking equipment and cloud-based applications.

United States Patent No.: US 10,042,609 B2
A method for generating random numbers and associated random number generator
The technology to obtain a random signal can be obtained from a random tunnelling of charges from one conductor to another conductor across a quantum tunnelling barrier. The random signal can be amplified and associated to a random number. The association can be performed repetitively to generate a sequence of random numbers.
