Driven by developments towards smart cities and economies, the accelerating growth of the smart device market is increasing the need for new security solutions which are lightweight and low-latency. Adding to the challenge, the threat of quantum computing must also be considered. Quantropi has developed QEEP to meet these needs today and into the future.
QEEP is a compact encoding and decoding engine for trusted communication. Its functions include data encoding/decoding, sending/receiving, and key distribution. As a software solution it can be installed on devices to protect data-in-transit against unauthorized access.
QEEP has an encoding space which far exceeds the search capabilities of quantum computers and is scalable to match future threats. Requiring under 3 kilobytes of memory and minimal computing power, QEEP can protect resource constrained devices, such as sensors, while adding minimal performance overhead. The encoding mechanism is not based on hard to solve math so special algorithms for quantum computers do not provide a shortcut for hackers.
