Online identity and credit-card theft make headlines every day, yet few people would guess that a little known science called quantum nanotechnology could offer a solution.
New research shows that nanotech can offer "future proof" online security across public networks such as the Internet, according to findings revealed exclusively to the Sun-Times.
A test in Europe this fall showed that quantum cryptography, which enables individual photons to be tracked while traveling along an optic fiber, can be used in today's fast-paced public Internet. It had only been feasible on private point-to-point systems prior to the breakthrough.
The tracking spotted attempts to capture the information and automatically halted the photons' journey, said Kelly Koenig, a Chicago-based consultant who got her master's degree at Northwestern University and has collaborated with professors there on the research.
