In Russia will create a “quantum telephone” with protection against wiretapping

Resource “Digital Moscow”, referring to the newspaper “Izvestia” reports that the Moscow State University named after Lomonosov (MSU) and the company “Infotecs” plan to create a domestic complex protect smartphones from listening. This will be achieved through the use of a device of quantum encryption methods. It is assumed that no special smartphone will be created as a result of the project, and the device looks completely identical to the regular gadget. Technology will be implemented in one of the vehicles sold in the market, which will remain a significant part of the elements, but some will be replaced by cryptographic device. It is assumed that the prototype of the “quantum telephone” will be shown in the summer.

Also, there will be some restrictions on the choice of means of communication – communication to be carried out with the help of Russian VipNet Connect program, which is similar to Skype. The resulting device will become “quantum telephone”. To work it will require connection to a computer via an optical cable, and connect to a network device in the center, to ensure sinhronzatsii quantum keys. High level of protection will be achieved by the physical properties of photons – any connection attempt will be detected by the system, and information transmitted at the same time will be changed.
