Product Sheets

  • qStream™ – Quantum Random Number Generator

    qStream is an appliance that features our quantum random number generator (QRNG) card.  Uniquely, qStream is both a very high speed hardware random number generator and also a generator of true random numbers, two things that until now have not been possible from one device.  Using the physical phenomena of quantum mechanics as the entropy source, conditioned full entropy random bit output (compliant with NIST SP 800-90B & C) is provided.

  • Trusted Security Foundation

    The QuintessenceLabs Trusted Security Foundation™ (TSF™) is a highly secure platform that combines unrivaled capabilities to deliver a single, centralized solution.

    The new TSF integrates the security of a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 hardware security module (HSM) with advanced key and policy manager qCrypt, and the qStream high-speed quantum random number generator, delivering the strongest foundation for data security.

  • QuintessenceLabs’ Encryption Modules

    QuintessenceLabs’ Encryption Modules (QEM) meet a wide range of security needs. qProtect™ delivers the highest security for mobile assets in uncontrolled environments, while the qSecure™ product range provides encryption solutions for file storage systems.

  • qCrypt™ – Key and Policy Manager

    qCrypt is a unique, vendor-neutral (KMIP compliant), key and policy management solution, addressing the toughest challenges in key management. qCrypt can also integrate our qStream full-entropy Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG), for high speed true random key generation and/or an embedded hardware security module for FIPS 140-2 Level 3 compliance.

  • qProtect™ – Virtual Zeroization Storage System

    qProtect™ safeguards sensitive data in uncontrolled environments. It uses mathematically unbreakable one-time pad encryption and at the same time destroys the encryption keys (virtual zeroization), protecting confidential information wherever it is, now and in the future.

  • qClient™ Software Development Kit (SDK)

    The QuintessenceLabs qClient™ Software Development Kit (SDK) allows developers to quickly and easily integrate powerful and secure cryptographic key management and random number management into any application.

  • qSecure-FS™ – File Storage Encryption

    qSecure-FS™ delivers flexible and secure encryption services for files stored on a network or in the cloud. It operates as a cryptographic gateway between the clients and storage.

White Papers

  • Random Number Generators

    All random is not created equal. The performance and characteristics of random number generators underlying many security functions have a strong impact on security. To put it simply, attackers don’t crack encryption, they steal or guess keys. All too often, there is a trade-off between quality and quantity when it comes to random numbers. This paper reviews the risks associated with these choices, and discusses new alternatives, like high speed quantum random number generators, to securely address this issue.

  • Key Management Best Practices

    Important concepts for cryptographic key management and how they are met by QuintessenceLabs encryption key management and policy management solutions.

  • What Is Quantum Key Distribution?

    What is quantum key distribution (QKD) and why does it matter? This technical paper explores in detail how quantum physics provides a key exchange solution that is absolutely secure and future proof.

  • Quantum Key Distribution Systems Compared

    There are two main quantum key distribution systems being developed, Discrete Variable QKD and Continuous Variable QKD (CV-QKD). We examine both systems and discuss the advantages of CV-QKD in terms of cost, form factor, power consumption, and performance.

  • CSA Quantum Safe Security Group: What is Quantum Safe Security?

    Public Key Infrastructure securing the exchange of encryption keys is vulnerable to improvements in processing power, particularly Quantum Computers. This paper discusses that challenge and presents two technologies that intend to address the threat: Post-Quantum Algorithms (PQAs) and Quantum Key Distribution (QKD)

  • Booz Allen Hamilton Assessment of True RNG

    This report by Booz Allen Hamilton shares the results of their investigation into the quality of true random number generators. See slide 25 for independent measurements of the performance of QuintessenceLabs’ qStream True Random Number Generator.

  • CSA Quantum Safe Security Working Group: What are Quantum Random Number Generators?

    A random number is generated by a process whose outcome is unpredictable, and which cannot be reliably reproduced. Weak random numbers can significantly reduce the strength of otherwise robust and well-designed systems. This paper discusses the risks associated with poor RNG and how quantum random number generators can address them.

  • CSA Quantum Safe Security Group: What is Quantum Key Distribution?

    This paper from the Cloud Security Alliance provides an overview of QKD technology. It discusses how the security of QKD relies on fundamental laws of nature, which are invulnerable to increasing computational power, new attack algorithms or quantum computers, making it secure against the most arbitrarily powerful eavesdroppers.

  • CSA Quantum Safe Security Working Group – Glossary

    This glossary, produced by the Quantum Safe Security Working Group of the Cloud Security Alliance, provides the reader with a concise definition of important technologies and approaches that can be used to help protect information from the quantum computing threat.
