Nokia and SK Telecom to Commercialize Image Sensor-based Random Number Generator

PRNewswire: SK Telecom announces an agreement with Nokia to cooperate in the quantum cryptography business. Under the agreement, the two companies will cooperate in the area of Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG), applying quantum cryptography technologies to IoT devices.

SK Telecom's QRNG is the world's smallest 5x5mm CMOS Image Sensor based all-in-one, single silicon providing non-deterministic true random numbers on demand from quantum-shot noise. SK Telecom plans to tape out engineering samples of QRNG chip in Q2 2017 and commercial launch is planned by the year end. SK Telecom envisions using QRNG for Internet of "secure" Things (IoT).

"Since opening Quantum Tech Lab in 2011, SK Telecom has been making constant efforts to develop quantum cryptography technologies," said Park Jung-ho, CEO and President of SK Telecom. "Based on the cooperation with Nokia, SK Telecom will create a new paradigm and ecosystem in the field of ICT."

"With SK Telecom's quantum cryptography technologies, we have secured the basis for building the most secure network security solution," said Rajeev Suri, CEO of Nokia. "We will respond proactively to rapidly growing demands of the cyber security market with these technologies and solutions."
