Quantum cryptography is a fairly complex mechanical approach providing a solution to hacking
AI Technology has generated a radical transformation in industries over the past two decades. Today we live in a technology-driven world where more and more things around us are automated. We play with datasets and in this game cybersecurity has become a priority for big tech. But quantum cryptography can be a saviour.
The requirement of cyber security has grown exponentially as more people and businesses also become aware of cyber threats. The internet is full of highly sensitive data and data breach cases are increasing very rapidly. These cyber threats are costing businesses billions of dollars and the need for data security has increased. Companies nowadays have huge amount of data and hackers are trying their best to get their hands on such sensitive information. Therefore, it becomes very necessary for companies to take these attacks seriously and understand that attackers are using smarter techniques and will spare no one. It is therefore fortunate that quantum cryptography not only offers new, much faster algorithms, but also very efficient mechanical approaches.
Quantum cryptography is essentially a process of exploiting quantum mechanical properties to perform cryptographic tasks. The best known example of quantum cryptography is quantum key distribution which provides a theoretically information secure solution to the key exchange problem. The advantage of quantum cryptography is that it allows the accomplishment of various cryptographic tasks that have proven or were thought to be impossible using only classical (i.e. non-quantum) communication. Quantum cryptography, or quantum key distribution (QKD), applies a series of photons (particles of light) to transmit data from one place to another via a fiber optic cable. By comparing measurements of the properties of a fraction of these photons, the two parameters can determine which is the key and whether it is safe to use. In the event that the photon is read or copied in any way by a hacker, the state of the photon will change and the changes will be detected by terminals. In other words, that means you can’t read the photon and pass it on or make a copy of it without being detected.
