Quantum eMotion partnership

Quantum eMotion Partners with The Platform for Digital and Quantum Innovation (PINQ²) for Testing its Security Platform using IBM Quantum Computer Powered Simulated Attacks


MONTREAL, March 18th, 2024 – Quantum eMotion Corp. (TSX.V: QNC) (OTCQB: QNCCF) (“QeM” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce its strategic partnership with the Platform for Digital and Quantum Innovation (PINQ²), a non-profit organization ( NPO) founded in 2021 by the Quebec Ministry of Economy, Innovation and Energy (MEIE) and the University of Sherbrooke. This collaboration marks an important milestone in Quantum eMotion's mission to improve the resilience of its security platform against the most advanced security threats, including simulated quantum computer attacks orchestrated using the Qiskit platform. IBM Quantum.

IBM and PINQ² announced last year the installation and availability of Canada's first IBM Quantum System One, along a partnership to accelerate quantum computing research application development into tackle complex and pressing global challenges. PINQ² is the exclusive operator of the cutting-edge 127-qubit IBM Quantum System One located at IBM Bromont.

The project's goal is to thoroughly examine and assess a version of the Kyber algorithm and the Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG) that Quantum eMotion currently uses. The project aims to evaluate the QeM security system's performance in a simulated adversarial security setting, ensuring its consistency with the company's strategic goals. Specifically, the project will investigate the technical challenges of the Kyber version through advanced testing, analysis, and possible optimization efforts. Furthermore, quantum attacks will be emulated using Qiskit to confirm the algorithm's resilience against emerging threats.

At the core of this project is a comprehensive review of Quantum eMotion's existing quantum-resistant security framework, identifying its strengths, weaknesses, and potential vulnerabilities. The partnership with PINQ² leverages simulation tools like Qiskit to execute quantum attack simulations, rigorously testing the security solution's durability.

Francis Bellido, CEO of QeM, commented: “We are very excited to collaborate with PINQ² in this unique endeavor, which has never been done before in this field. This is the first step toward building an open-source test bed for post-quantum security solutions. Eventually, we aim at proving that our security platform can make a significant difference in withstanding the threats posed by quantum computing.

" We are delighted to partner with Quantum eMotion in this groundbreaking project. Our collaboration will enable us to leverage our expertise and resources to rigorously test Quantum eMotion's security platform against the most advanced threats, including simulated quantum computer attacks. ”, stated Éric Capelle, Executive Director of PINQ². “ This partnership is a testament to our commitment to driving innovation and advancing the field of quantum-resistant security solutions. "
