SK Telecom succeeds in applying quantum encryption key distributor technology to corporate IP equipment
Enterprises are also expected to be able to use communication security services using quantum cryptography.
[Introduction of the case / Reporter Park Yeon-pa] = SK Telecom (CEO Park Jeong-ho) and IDQ (ID Quantique)* succeeded in applying quantum cryptographic communication technology to corporate IP equipment such as routers and switches, and based on this,'Quantum VPN technology for enterprises' '* It announced on the 6th that the development was completed.
As the QKD* (Quantum Key Distributor)-based quantum VPN technology is developed, companies that do not have a dedicated network will be able to use the communication security service using quantum encryption.
Quantum VPN technology is a solution that combines enterprise IP equipment security technology and quantum encryption technology. It can be flexibly applied to various B2B network structures and services, and has maximized security.
SKT has applied and operated encryption technology using QKD to existing specialized 5G transmission networks (Seoul-Daejeon, Daejeon-Daegu), and this time, it has completed interlocking tests with corporate IP equipment, not transmission networks, so that quantum encryption communication technology will be popularized and corporate security. It is expected to be able to contribute to service improvement.
SKT announced that it plans to continue to develop various ways to link QKD and improve QKD performance, and that it is also reviewing various encryption methods to create a safe communication environment.
In addition, SKT has been successfully building a 5G quantum cryptography-based smart plant and digital innovation hospital using quantum cryptographic communication networks such as Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power and Yonsei Severance Hospital. SKT plans to continue to raise the level of security across industries, including the public and private sectors, by actively participating in the 2021 Digital New Deal project based on its accumulated technology.
SKT Min-Yong Ha, head of Innovation Suite, said, “This linkage has laid the foundation for more and more B2B customers to experience quantum security one step ahead. SK Telecom will continue to develop and cooperate with related technologies to provide the best security to customers. I plan to go out.”
*VPN (Virtual Private Network): Corporate communication service that can provide independent network services to individual B2B customers
*IDQ: As the world's No. 1 quantum professional company based in Switzerland, it has original patents and researchers related to quantum cryptography (a subsidiary of SKT).
*QKD: A technology that communicates by creating a cryptographic key that cannot be hacked by using the fact that the information contained in both is changed when a third party intervenes when the sender/receiver exchanges quantum.
