On the day prefacing the start of this year’s St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), in an event held at the A.S. Popov Central Museum of Communications, Rostelecom unveiled a prototype of Russia’s first quantum-encrypted data transmission network. This data transmission mechanism is considered to be the safest one out there, as the keys protecting the traffic cannot be intercepted or stolen because of the laws of quantum physics. ITMO University is one of the developers and suppliers of state-of-the-art equipment.
