Encryption is an essential and fundamental way to keep people safe online, Hear that world governments! ESSENTIAL! From keeping information away from hackers in the banking sector to assisting journalists in their exceptional work exposing corruption within various forms, encryption is imperative.

But it does have its weaknesses which have been highlighted by many cases involving individuals who would rather all information be freely available within many communications outlets. Encryption is in need of a revamp which might be a reality thanks to tech company Toshiba who will be undertaking verification testing on a new form of encryption technique which the Tokyo based firm says is “unbreakable”

Toshiba are naming this project a testing of Quantum Cryptographic Communication System. So what is a Quantum Cryptographic system? Well according to Toshiba’s website this technique uses quantum physics to ensure that genomic data encrypted with digital keys remains secret. This differs from standard communications which are being intercepted by measuring a part of the optical signal, Toshiba aims to bring this project to market within five years of full development.

Sounds promising, but Toshiba also states that potential users will be public agencies and also medical institutions, as yet it’s unclear if Mr Average Jo will benefit from this potential innovation. It also remains to be seen if this technique is “unbreakable” as this definition is open to interpretation.

Thank You Toshiba for providing us with this information
