The Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory awarded Qrypt one of two of its licensing awards. The award fully recognizes the successful transfer of federal laboratory technologies to the marketplace.
From ORNL, today, March 13, “Qrypt, Inc., has exclusively licensed a novel cyber security technology from ORNL that promises a stronger defense against cyberattacks including those posed by quantum computing. Qrypt will incorporate ORNL’s quantum random number generator into the company’s existing encryption platform, using inherent quantum randomness to create unique and unpredictable encryption keys enabling virtually impenetrable communications. ORNL researchers are Raphael Pooser, Travis Humble, Brian Williams, Bing Qi and Benjamin Lawrie. Commercialization was led by Eugene Cochran.”
