Today, we carry out countless transactions over the internet, but it is also known that the internet has some unique risks. US researchers have shared plans for the network, which can hardly be hacked in any way.
US officials and scientists have begun to lay the foundations for Internet-based quantum computer technology that is safer and hardly hacked in any way. The report released by the US Department of Energy (DOE) officials on Tuesday revealed that the strategy for the development of the national quantum internet was based on transferring information using the laws of quantum mechanics. Of course, this means a more secure communication network than existing internet networks.
Working with universities and industry researchers, the agency aims to create a prototype within 10 years. Moreover, it is not the first attempt of these scientists on the subject. Before that, different tests on the subject were also carried out.
A network of 83 kilometers was established
Scientists at DOE’s Argonne National Laboratory and researchers at the University of Chicago succeeded in establishing a 83-kilometer quantum cycle in February. This innovation was described as the largest land-based quantum network ever built in the USA.
The point that scientists are currently focusing on is creating a safer network based on quantum entanglement, or in other words, transmitted by subatomic particles. “One of the greatest qualities of quantum transmissions is that it is incredibly difficult to track unauthorized when moving between the two locations. Scientists will try to build networks that can hardly be hacked in any way,” DOE said in a statement on the subject.
The Ministry of Energy stated that banks and the health sector are among the sectors that will use this technology for the first time. Of course, it is highly possible to include areas such as national security and aircraft communication among these areas. At present, 17 national laboratories are said to be the backbone of the research, while the project received financial support from the state.
