viking80 writes: Norwegian researches hacked quantum encryption without detection
Quantum encryption is considered to be among the safest ways to encrypt data as it is extremely difficult to break the encryption without leaving changes that will be detected.
Any attamps to eavsdrop should theoretically be detected. Now, researchers at NTNU in Trondheim, Norway managed to crack Quantum encryption using a laser to "blind" the receiver. The full article is in the journal Nature Photonics
- Our hack gave 100 percent understanding of the key, with zero disturbance of the system, "says NTNU researchers Vadim Makarov and Lars Lydersen. Researchers have tried on two commercially available Quantum encryption systemes — one from the company id Quantique in Switzerland and one from MagiQ Technologies in the United States.
