Current cryptographic communication utilizes prime factorization, requiring significant calculation time for decryption even with state-of-the-art computers, ensuring security of the communication through the time required for such decryption.
However, calculation speeds of quantum computers currently being developed are expected to be exponentially faster than our newest computers today, exposing traditional cryptographic communication to increased risk, creating strong demand for new cryptographic communication technology in IoT, automated driving, telemedicine, finance, military, and other areas where high levels of security are crucial.
Multiple research institutions are therefore researching quantum communication based on quantum mechanics. While quantum communication theoretically makes it absolutely impossible to tap, the distance covered is currently limited to several tens of kilometers, falling short of the required span of several hundreds or thousands of kilometers required for full-scale application in society.
QWAVE Dynamics cooperates with domestic and foreign research institutions to research and develop quantum repeaters required to achieve such long-distance communications and aims to achieve commercial viability in the near future.
