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
Accelerate the Worlds Transition to Quantum Safe Security
Qunu Labs will be a Market Leader in Quantum Security Solutions
Dr. Anil Prabhakar received his Ph.D. in 1997 from Carnegie Mellon University, with a dissertation on the Nonlinear
Spin-wave Optical Interactions. He has been at the faculty at the Dept. of Electrical Engineering, IIT-Madras since 2002 with current research interests in the areas of photonics, magnonics, bio-engineering and assistive technologies. He has co-authored a book on Spin Waves, has more than 40 journal papers and 5 patents.
He is a director of an IITM incubated company, Unilumen Photonics, that focuses on fiber laser development. Prior to joining IIT Madras, Dr. Prabhakar held various staff and managerial positions in the hard disk drive industry, working in areas of design, characterization and failure analysis of GMR recording heads. He was a recipient of 2007 the INAE Young Engineer, for his contributions to optics and electromagnetics. He is the current director at QuNu Labs, Bangalore.
Mark holds a B.Tech in Electronics and Communication from IIT Madras Chennai, India, (1977) and an MS in Computer Technology from the University of Maryland College Park, USA (1979). He has immense experience of over 35 years in Electronic Product Design. The notable product developments of which he has been a prominent part include affordable low power appliances, Simputer and Mobilis for use in applications to bridge the Digital Divide, and the 'SATHI', a product that provides situation awareness in a battlefield, designed for the Indian Army.
He is going strong working at QuNU Labs helping provide mentorship and his valuable assistance toward the development several quantum security products with the use of one of the most complex and an emerging technology, the Quantum Technology.
Prithvi earned her B.A. (Hons) from Lady Shri Ram College for Women in New Delhi. She then went on to work at D. E. Shaw Research in Hyderabad covering areas of scientific recruitment and HR management.
She is focused on science management and development of technology in the sphere of bioengineering and engineering. Predominantly interested on high impact solutions in India through building products for scientifically complex problems. At QuNu Labs, she primarily handles all HR/project management activities and operations. Here, she also largely focusses on aspects of business development, sales, and marketing to government institutions, defence, and banking.
Dr. Anindita Banerjee received her Ph.D. in 2011 from Jaypee Institute of Information Technology (JIIT), Noida on the topic ” Synthesis, optimization, and testing of reversible and quantum circuits”. She was an Assistant. Prof. in Women’s College of Engineering, Durgapur. Her expertise was used is in setting up of a Quantum Optics Lab for single-photon-based experiments for undergraduates at Bose Institute.
Another major successful aspect of her career is that she has co-authored a book on Optical quantum computation and quantum communication which was published in SPIE Spotlight Series. Her research interests include quantum information, quantum computing, quantum secure communication, quantum cryptography and reversible computation. She provides her unparalleled insight into the world of quantum computation/communication to her colleagues to help provide quantum security products to the Indian market.
Ravie, aka Lt Col P R Menon, VSM (Retd) served 22 years in the Army Corps of Signals. An ace programmer in his early years, he has 16 software products to his credit. He earned repute as an ICT Strategist and was involved in numerous technical projects. He is decorated with a VSM from the President of India for Distinguished Military Service besides many laurels. He is best known for his exemplary role in steering the Army's First PPP R&D project which led to the development of the World's First Handheld Battlefied Situational Awareness System, the 'SATHI'. Ravie also invented the mobile Adhoc Networking Protocol called "Grapevine" implemented in that system for which he was awarded the Gadhadhar Memorial Award from I.E.T.E.
Post retirement, Ravie has had seven years of leadership experience in IT/ITES sector before joining QuNu, including setting up and heading a Software Startup for a German MNC Group. At QuNu he has been instrumental in evangelising the technology, building the brand image, market penetration and visibility and setting up an order pipeline.
He holds a B.Tech in Computer Science from NIT, Trichy, Madras Univ. India, (1985). He has over 30 years of experience in leading R&D, Product Development, Business Development and Sales functions playing multitude of roles as CTO, COO and CEO. He has led startups, mid-size and multinational companies. He has vast experience working with clients from Large multinationals to small start-up companies in U.S, EMEA and APAC regions. He has worked on some of the industry's first and leading products and solutions Telecom and BFSI space such as Finacle banking Suite, Thuraya – Geostationary satellite-based communication system.
