Modern society is underpinned by digital technology and information that is becoming increasingly vulnerable to attack, with massive data breaches on the rise. Quantum security harnesses the fundamental behaviour of electrons and light to provide novel functionality; provably secure communications, truly random number generation (for keys and passwords) and authentication for devices at the atomic scale. In this talk Professor Robert Young FHEA will introduce how quantum technology can be applied to security, and give an overview of some of the contributions that Lancaster’s research has made to the field. Through a Lancaster-based spin-out, Quantum Base, we are bringing this technology to market, including a smartphone-readable labelling technology (Q-IDs) for anti-counterfeiting, which Professor Young will demonstrate in the talk.
