in the Quantum series following up last year’s Galaxy A Quantum. The new Quantum
2 has a built in cryptography technology to increase its security measures.
The new Quantum series has a chip developed by the company called ID Quantique,
it is said to be the smallest quantum random number generator at 2.5mm square.
It works by capturing random noise with an LED and a CMOS image sensor.
According to SK Telecom, the QRNG chip ?allows smartphone holders to use
services that require security in a more safe and secure manner by generating
unpredictable and patternless true random numbers.?- Source The Verge
The phone’s Quantum Cryptography RNG is said to be the most difficult to hack
without given any physical access to the device but the QRNG chip does
automatically work with apps that use the Android Keystore APIs, which should
make the technology more accessible for developers. SK Telecom is attempting to
sell the local compatibility with the likes of ?Shinin Bank and Standard
Chartered Bank of Korea.
The carrier says it?ll work with more services in the future, including
Samsung?s own credit cards.Source The Verge
