Quantum VPN is a visionary approach to classical VPN. It aims to make use of Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) to achieve a secure VPN connection. This project originated in the Pan European Quantum Internet Hackathon 2019 in cooperation with STB and gluoNNet.
With their unprecedented computational power, quantum computer threaten the current cryptography protocols. Therefore, researchers are looking for better ways to ensure the safety of data transfers in all means.
A Quantum Key Distribution protocol is used to replace the classical key distribution. The host and the client servers rely on these “secure” keys while using the VPN service.
THE ADDED BENEFIT
QuantumVPN brings a new visionary look towards the future of quantum-secure communication. Our early proposal brings an additional security level to use quantum-communication channels, which are prone to eavesdropping.
