An inherently secure internet
Fundamentally new ways of securing information on the internet are needed, and a quantum internet provides a quirky workaround. It can use radically different techniques, exploiting quantum phenomena, and help us to secure our valuable information and protect against cyber attacks.
Quantum information technology offers improved login protocols, able to better protect your passwords. It keeps crucial details safe from phishing attempts and eavesdroppers.
Quantum technology allows data analysis without revealing data contents. That means data analytics without compromise on privacy, granting new insights in healthcare and logistics.
