RANDOM NUMBER GENERATORS
Founded in 2016 in Bangalore, India, QuNu Labs is the first quantum key distribution company in India. QuNu Labs is incubated with Indian
Institute of Technology (IIT), Madras with the aim of collaborating with academia to conduct research on advanced versions of cybersecurity and build new technology and products surrounding it.
Unconditional Safe Security Technology Company
QuNu Labs uses sophisticated algorithms and high precision optics to create a quantum encryption system, Quantum Random Number Generators (QRNG), which provide for an unconditionally secure optical link.
Large enterprise securities, financial institutions and defence around the world would in turn ensure long term protection of data even in the age of quantum computers.
In the symmetric key crypto-systems, both communication parties possess an identical secret key for encryp
tion and decryption algorithms. In classical systems, the methodology for key exchange is not unconditionally secure. Quantum Key Distribu
tion (QKD), on the other-hand, is based on the quantum mechanical impossibility of
duplicating information (non-cloning) without alerting both the transmitter and receiver.
Also, the process of duplication alters the original data irrevocably. These two factors combine to provide absolute security of
