Incorporating Post-Quantum Cryptography for Thales Luna HSMs

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / January 17, 2023 / 01 Communique Laboratory Inc. (TSXV:ONE)(OTCQB:OONEF) an enterprise level cybersecurity provider has partnered with Thales Group a Paris based trusted global technology leader to integrate IronCAP™ post-quantum cryptography ("PQC") with Thales Luna HSMs ("Hardware Security Modules") - providing military grade protection for users' data and critical applications.

This partnership is designed to develop and joint-market quantum-safe cybersecurity solutions for global businesses, organisations and governments to ensure cyber resilience in the post quantum environment. Thales Luna HSM customers can now add IronCAP™ FM ("Functional Module") making PQC functionality seamless while conforming with the latest standards set by the National Institute of Standards and Technology ("NIST").

The parties will now immediately move to joint-marketing activities.

Quoting Andrew Cheung, CEO of 01 Communique, "PQC systems are essential to protect sensitive data and critical applications from sophisticated attacks; now that Quantum Computers increase the threat. Integration of IronCAP™ with Thales Luna HSMs provide users with an extra layer of security to protect them. Our goal is to partner with Thales, to market the world's best PQC solutions to enterprises and governments throughout the world - and ensure their clients' data and applications are secure."

"Thales is a trusted global leader in this field with a massive global footprint and their choice of IronCAP speaks to our best-in-class research and execution. This is a game changer both for 01 and the industry as a whole. The birth of a quantum-safe HSM.", added Andrew Cheung.

"It's vital that businesses understand that many of today's encryption standards are not fit for a quantum world. Hackers know quantum is coming and are actively working to steal data now so they can access it in the future, and large and multi-national organisations are most at risk due to compliance and privacy mandates. To protect their data in a Zero Trust world, organisations must embrace a strong Post Quantum crypto-agility strategy that looks beyond algorithms, to hybrid solutions that provide future protection today," said Todd Moore, Vice President, Encryption Products at Thales.
