(Yicai Global) Sept. 28 -- Dawning Information Industry Co. [SHA:603019], a high-tech company headquartered in Tianjin in North China, released the world's first quantum communication crypto cloud server, QC (quantum cryptography) server, which it jointly developed with CAS Quantumnet Co.
The pair unveiled the product at a strategic agreement signing ceremony in Beijing yesterday, Dawning Information Industry said online. The server features a quantum communication-based key management system, a secure operations platform and a cloud computing operating system developed to create urban and private cloud networks.
Advances in quantum computing research throughout the world will make quantum computers a reality in the foreseeable future. It takes one traditional computer 150,000 years to crack a cryptographic key, but a quantum computer can do it in one second, and China thus needs to develop its own quantum communication industry as quickly as possible, said Cao Zhennan, a vice president at Dawning Information Industry.
Dawning Information Industry and CAS Quantumnet are both hi-tech enterprises affiliated with the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). The former is a leader in the high-performance computer field. It is the developer of Dawning 6000, Asia's first and the world's third supercomputer with a computing capacity of over 1,000 trillion operations per second.
Under the strategic partnership, the pair will work with other companies along the industry chain to create a quantum communication ecosystem and promote quantum communication technology applications.
