Qrypt to Provide Quantum Secure Encryption for NVIDIA BlueField-3 DPUs

Blog Post

Qrypt is pioneering modern cybersecurity solutions to protect against quantum and AI-era threats

NEW YORK – March 15, 2024 – Qrypt, the pioneering quantum-secure encryption company, today announced the launch of its Qrypt Quantum Entropy and Quantum Secure Key Generation technologies. AI workloads using NVIDIA BlueField-3 DPUs can now be transmitted using quantum-secure encryption, offering added protection against quantum computing threats to current cryptography.


NVIDIA BlueField traditionally utilizes IPsec to set up encrypted connections between AI clusters. This connection is based on current encryption methods, which can be vulnerable to quantum attacks.


Qrypt’s technology integrates directly into IPsec to manage key generation and establishment without using public key infrastructure to transmit keys. With Qrypt’s quantum-secure BLAST protocol, BlueField-3 DPUs can simultaneously generate a symmetric encryption key for both the sender and receiver, eliminating key transmission and establishing a quantum-secure channel.


The Qrypt solution leverages true quantum random entropy to generate all key materials, with technologies built through an exclusive partnership with U.S. National Laboratories. This creates the highest-quality encryption keys for the symmetric key generation used to secure the AI clusters, and these keys are never transmitted across the network.


Global digital networks still rely on a pre-cloud, pre-internet model for cryptographic security, which is over 50 years old. Qrypt leverages modern virtualization, containerization, and highly distributed infrastructure to achieve a much higher level of security, vast redundancy, and, ultimately, it eliminates any single point of failure in secure communications. The transition to post-quantum cryptography is an opportunity to move on from a simple math upgrade to a durable cryptography architecture designed to be invulnerable to “harvest now, decrypt later” data theft strategies, most types of cyber-attacks, and common software failures.


Qrypt is a member of NVIDIA Inception, a program that offers go-to-market support, expertise, and technological assistance for startups.


“Our technology represents a paradigm shift, leveraging novel virtualization and distributed cryptographic architecture to eliminate any single point of failure,” said Denis Mandich, co-founder and chief technology officer at Qrypt. “We are excited to work with NVIDIA to help further our commitment to secure communications and sensitive data.”


“NVIDIA BlueField DPUs are critical for securing the data-in-motion used for both AI training and inference,” said Ash Bhalgat, senior director of cloud, telco and cybersecurity market development at NVIDIA. “Our collaboration with Qrypt enables next-generation cybersecurity technologies for secure and accelerated communication within the generative AI foundries.”


Qrypt offers the only cryptographic solution capable of securing data indefinitely and remediates the “harvest now, decrypt later” vulnerability by eliminating key transmissions and protecting this process by using independently generated keys. Qrypt’s Quantum Secure Encryption generates one-time pads and symmetric keys at multiple endpoints, providing encryption that’s been mathematically designed to be unbreakable.


Speaking more about the product launch, Denis Mandich will be joining Ash Bhalgat, NVIDIA’s senior director of market development, on Monday, March 18, for a panel on AI cybersecurity at NVIDIA GTC, a global AI developer conference: https://www.nvidia.com/gtc/session-catalog/?search=SE63316
