LTIMindtree, a global leader in technology consulting and digital solutions, saw its shares on the up on Friday after the company took a significant leap into the future of cybersecurity by launching a cutting-edge Quantum-Safe Virtual Private Network (VPN) link at its London office.
What to know? This quantum-secure communications system safeguards data transmission against the emerging threat of “harvest now, decrypt later” attacks.
This Quantum-Safe VPN, developed in partnership with Quantum Xchange and Fortinet, showcases the practical use of Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) in a live network. It integrates quantum-based key generation and out-of-band key delivery, fortified by PQC algorithms poised for standardization by NIST.
Quantum Xchange contributes quantum hardware and software for key generation and management, while Fortinet’s FortiGate firewall provides VPN functionality, integrating quantum-safe keys with standard VPN protocols. LTIMindtree’s expertise in integration and domain knowledge ensures the successful operation of the Quantum-Safe VPN link across its active network.
This venture by LTIMindtree, Quantum Xchange, and Fortinet not only bolsters data security but also prepares businesses for the quantum era. It represents a pioneering effort in demonstrating the practicality and advantages of quantum-safe communication solutions in real-world settings.
