RANDAEMON, a Polish startup with offices in Warsaw and San Diego, California, sets the world’s highest standard in cybersecurity as its Quantum Random Number Generator obtains yet another patent in the USA.
On March 22, 2022, the United States Patent and Trademark Office granted a new patent number 11,281,432 METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR TRUE RANDOM NUMBER GENERATOR BASED ON NUCLEAR RADIATION assigned to RANDAEMON.
There are billions of IoT devices sold every year. Moreover, billions of personal communication devices like cell phones, desktop computers, and millions of servers are used worldwide. These devices require tight cybersecurity, particularly with rapidly emerging quantum computing that makes traditional cryptography vulnerable. For modern cryptography, vast amounts of large random numbers are needed on both the senders’ and the recipients’ devices. Perfect random numbers can only be provided by Quantum Random Number Generators (QRNGs).
This new patent extends previously issued US patents owned by RANDAEMON, covering the general idea of using pure beta minus (electron emission) nuclear decay as a source of entropy and design and manufacturing of QRNGs. A random number generator is disclosed, including a radioactive source and an array of detector cells. The issued patent allows for a much faster and more efficient generation of random numbers on-chip from the very same source of entropy, i.e., nickel 63. The efficiency goes up to 0.5 Gb/(sec∙cm2) of the detectors area of the chip. Such large quantities of random numbers are needed by modern cryptography, unbreakable by quantum computers.
