#965 QuintessenceLabs getting truly random with quantum security
Security firm QuintessenceLabs (QLabs) has taken to quantum computing to find the solution for secure communication.

John Leiseboer, CTO of QLabs, said that the bigger picture of what his organisation does is build random number generators using quantum techniques as well as build key management systems which generate, store, and distribute key material, as well as manage the policies associated with the usage of cryptographic applications.

"We use a special algorithm called one time pad which has some very powerful security properties, the most important being something called information theoretic security which basically means there are no attacks that can be mounted algorithmically or through computational power that can crack it. It is as good as the key itself," Leiseboer said.
