Alibaba adds IDQ’s QRNG to its cloud-based services, to improve the security of financial transactions


In its latest report published in Nature, Alibaba shows how QRNGs with intrinsic unpredictability can be used to greatly enhance the security of cryptosystems.

Alibaba has tested the use of QRNG for their online services (e.g., Ant Financial, Alipay, Smart Access Gateway (SAG) where high-volume random numbers are required by thousands of servers and real-time post-processing is needed to meet the requirements of online encryption.

For future work, Alibaba will consider applications with post-quantum algorithms and QKD. They will also develop and integrate more different QRNGs to enhance the security and speed of their system.
