Samsung launches world’s first 5G smartphone with Quantum security chip
Samsung the Smartphone manufacturer giant launches the world’s first 5G Smartphone with a Quantum security chip. Samsung names the historical model as “Samsung Galaxy A Quantum”. The quantum security chip is developed by SK Telecom.
What is the Quantum Security chip?
According to the SK Telecom expert, a quantum security chip is a random number generation chip that helps smartphone users safely use specific services by generating unpredictable and patternless pure random numbers. The chip has a CMOS image sensor to detect photons, with this being the basis for the random number generation used for encryption keys.
When a user of Galaxy A Quantum sets biometric authentication with ‘SKT 5GX Quantum’ in the SK Pay app, you can see the message ‘SK Pay is protected with SKT 5GX Quantum’ at the top of the smartphone screen when using the app
said the expert
Samsung already offers a data security chip and it was debuted on its newly-launched Galaxy S20 series. The addition of a hardware safety inside the phone is now necessary to safeguard them from any potential risks.
Software-based security solutions are limited in their ability to build a wall against any risks. That’s where hardware-based security systems come into play. SK Telecom’s QRNG chip is one such form of it.
