This technology can be used to exchange keys between two remote sites connected by an optical fibre cable, and to confirm their secrecy. The keys are then used with secret key algorithms to securely encrypt information. With such an approach it is possible to guarantee future-proof data confidentiality based on the laws of quantum physics. Its deployment on critical links allows thus to raise the information security level of an organization.
