While QiSpace™ is our flagship SaaS platform, Quantropi has developed a number of pioneering technology solutions inspired by quantum mechanics. These innovations form part of the company’s core intellectual property assets and may be subject to development, deployment and/or licensing going forward, together with potential partners.
Post-quantum cryptographic systems are developed to be secure against both quantum and classical attacks. Multivariate cryptography is one of the major families of post-quantum cryptography relying on well-studied NP-Hard mathematical problems.
Quantropi has introduced its own novel post-quantum multivariate cryptosystem that establishes key exchange and digital signature mechanisms. MPPK offers comparable performance to current PQC algorithms and significantly smaller digital signature sizes for all NIST security levels.
A novel quantum encryption algorithm that leverages quantum permutation gates for random number generation and symmetric encryption capabilities. QPP achieves perfect secrecy and is lightweight in its software implementation. In addition, it can be readily implemented in quantum computing environments, due to the quantum nature of permutation operators.
Having both classical and quantum implementations enables natively secure communication between quantum devices, as well as hybrid environments consisting of quantum and classical devices.
A novel signal modulation scheme leveraging existing coherent optical communications hardware and infrastructure, to achieve physical layer quantum-secure encryption. CTF-QKD allows for in-flight data encryption operating with no latency, is protocol agnostic, and protects all data being sent over the optical fiber. Currently, we have experimentally shown transmission rates of 200Gbps.
CTF-QKD can operate in two configurations:
Randy holds a doctorate in quantum physics. His research findings have been published in top international journals and named “Kuang’s semi-classical formalism” by NASA in 2012. With a career spanning IT, including with Nortel as senior network researcher & developer, he co-founded inBay Technologies in 2009, serving as CTO of the cybersecurity platform. As the first recipient of a patent for two-level authentication (2011), Randy is a prolific inventor, with 30+ U.S. patents in broad technology fields, such as WiMAX, optical networks, multi-factor identity authentication, transaction authorization, as well as concepts, technologies and industrial applications for quantum key distribution.
Cory brings a breadth of experience to the Quantropi team, working fractionally with multiple SaaS technology companies as CFO, and as the CFO with Celtic House Venture Partners. Prior to these roles, Cory was CFO and COO at Solink, and played a lead role in the metrics-led pivot to a direct-sales SaaS model, followed by multiple VC-backed funding rounds and their recognition as one of the fastest growing start-ups in Canada. He qualified as a CPA while serving technology, VC & PE-fund clients at Deloitte, and earned his Bachelor of Commerce at Queen’s University.
A seasoned technology executive, business builder and angel investor, Raj has held operational and advisory roles in Recognia (Trading Central), Belair Networks (Ericsson), March Networks (Infinova), Sandvine (Procera), Neurolanguage (ADEC), Bridgewater Systems (Amdocs), Vayyoo (Cafex), TenXc (CCI), 1Mobility (Qualys) and others. Having divided his time among North America, EMEA and Asia-Pac for over 20 years, Raj speaks several languages. He grew up in Asia, Europe, South America and Canada, and holds a B.Eng degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Ottawa. He is also a co-founder and Charter Member of the Ottawa chapter of TiE (the Indus Entrepreneur).
Before joining Quantropi, Mike was Managing Director and co-founder of Accenture Ventures, where he grew a global portfolio of strategic partnerships and 38 equity investments in emerging technology startups.
During his nearly 30 years with Accenture, he incubated and launched technology innovations for enterprises across multiple geographies and industries. Ever-passionate about bold ideas with game-changing results, he speaks frequently on the impact of emerging technology on large organizations.
With a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Princeton, and a Master’s in Biomedical Engineering from Northwestern, Mike is a former member of the Board of Directors for the Accenture Foundation and Board Observer for startups Maana and Splice Machine.
Eric Chan a.k.a. EEPMON is a Crypto / Digital Artist with 15 years in the industry – and Quantropi’s Creative Emissary. His hybrid fractal/digital creations have been seen in fashion, comics to museums and has exhibited worldwide. EEPMON’s collaborations include Canada Goose, MARVEL, Snoopy, Microsoft Xbox, Canada Science & Technology Museum and was a TEDx performing artist. In 2018 he represented Canada on its first Creative Industries Trade Mission led by Canada’s Minister of Heritage and serves on the Canadian Museums Association‘s Board of Directors. At the same time, he is currently completing his Master of Information Technology – Digital Media at Carleton University.
