Post-Quantum Satellite Protection Rockets Towards Reality

Tara Seals / Dark Reading / 31 March 2023

QuSecure, developers of post-quantum cryptography have successfully created a trial, data-transmission channel from Earth to satellites in multiple orbits that is resistant to the hacking of the future. This trial marks an important milestone in the development of secure communication technologies capable of protecting our data from potentially malicious actors. Thanks to the hard work of these developers, we can now look forward to a more secure future with greater peace of mind. With the successful completion of this trial, we are one step closer to a world where our data is secure from malicious threats.

The QuSecure and Accenture team have recently successfully completed a groundbreaking test, demonstrating the secure transmission of data protected by classical RSA-2048 and post-quantum encryption from a low-Earth orbit (LEO) satellite to a higher-altitude geosynchronous orbit (GEO) satellite and back to Earth. This marks an historic first for the team, a proud achievement that speaks volumes about their innovation and hard work. The success of this test is a major step forward in the world of secure satellite communications.
