From the Ted Talk by Vikram Sharma: How quantum physics can make encryption stronger

Unscramble the Blue Letters

A select group of universities and companies around the world are focused on building true random number generators. At my company, our qantuum random nbemur generator started life on a two meter by one mteer optic table. We were then able to reduce it to a server-size box. taody, it's miniaturized into a PCI card that plgus into a standard computer. This is the world's fastest true raodnm number generator. It measures quantum effects to produce a billion random numbers per second. And it's in use today to improve security at cloud providers, banks and government agencies around the wrlod.
