Toshiba devises way to send encrypted messages using quantum mechanics

Toshiba plans to demonstrate a working prototype within two years

Toshiba claims to have uncovered a way use the laws of quantum mechanics to send super-secure encrypted messages.

In Toshiba's previous research into quantum cryptography, it found that bits are carried and transmitted on individual photons, which cannot be read-out without leaving errors as evidence of the intrusion and, thanks to this property, it is possible to test and guarantee the secrecy of quantum keys.

The Japanese company has claimed for a while now that quantum cryptography realises secure transfers of all manner of confidential information, including biometric data and genomic data. ... "
