Quantum cryptography allows secure communications on fibre optic and free space
networks. Uniquely it offers ‘unconditional secrecy’, which is independent
of the computing power, fancy gadgetry or cunning of a hacker. The security of quantum
cryptography stems from inviolable laws of nature and it is therefore widely regarded
as the strongest cryptographic protection possible.
Toshiba's system for quantum cryptography offers world-leading performance. It can
operate over long lengths of standard telecom fibres, even for distances in excess
of 120 km. The system is self-initiating and can operate continually
without any human management.
