Réseau de cryptographie quantique en fonctionnement depuis plus de 12'000 heures

GENÈVE, Suisse, October 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Le réseau quantique SwissQuantum a été mis en place à Genève par l'Université de Genève (UniGe), la Haute Ecole Spécialisée de Suisse Occidentale (HES-SO) et la société id Quantique dans le but de démontrer la maturité de la cryptographie quantique et ceci dans un réseau maillé. Contrairement aux autres réseaux quantiques, celui-ci est utilisé pour sécuriser du trafic réel et est testé indépendamment.

La cryptographie quantique est une technologie permettant de distribuer sur des liens optiques des clés de chiffrement dont la sécurité est garantie par les lois de la physique quantique. Pour Nicolas Gisin (UniGe) << il s'agit de la seule technologie garantissant une confidentialité à long terme. >>

Les trois liens de cryptographie quantique formant le réseau transmettent des clés de chiffrement entre ses trois noeuds. Ces clés sont ensuite utilisées pour chiffrer des communications, comme par exemple un lien 10 gigabit Ethernet entre le CERN et l'Université de Genève. Le Prof. Gérald Litzistorf de la HES-SO note << SwissQuantum est le réseau quantique le plus avancé à ce jour. J'ai été impressionné par le fait que cette technologie ne requière que des compétences standard dans le domaine des réseaux pour être utilisée. >>

Le réseau, déployé en avril 2009, est en fonctionnement depuis plus de six mois et a passé récemment la barre des 12'000 heures cumulées de fonctionnement. << Avec ce projet, nous apportons une démonstration claire que cette technologie est fiable, mûre et prête à être déployée >> explique Grégoire Ribordy, directeur d'id Quantique. Le fonctionnement du réseau SwissQuantum a été présenté cette semaine au salon ITU Telecom World à Genève et ses performances dévoilées lors d'une conférence le 8 octobre.

Today's workforce is trading their cubicles and corporate desktops in favor of an any-location, any-device work style. And as digital natives make up more and more of the modern workforce, the appetite for user-friendly, cloud-based services grows. The center of work is shifting to the user and to the cloud. But managing a proliferation of SaaS, web, and mobile apps running on any number of clouds and devices is unwieldy and increases security risks. Steve Wilson, Citrix Vice President of Cloud,...
