Cybersecurity has become a top priority for any computing environment, and edge computing is no exception. As edge devices are more present, so are the security threats. The distributed nature of Edge computing presents unique challenges that require vanguard solutions that go beyond the state-of-the-art.

This is why together with Quside whose mission is to integrate quantum technology that leads to more secure connectivity and efficient computation, we have written the whitepaper Increasing Edge Computing Security with Quantum Random Number Generators”, directed toCIOs and Infrastructure Managers who are deploying or intent to deploy Edge Computing Servers and Gateways.

In their pursuit of maintaining high security of applications throughout the distributed Edge, the study provides a comprehensive guide to making informed decisions regarding the adoption of emerging technologies, which will be crucial to maintaining a competitive difference in the future quantum-dominated landscape.

Edge Computing offers industries with very distributed assets, the capability to process data closer to the source, reducing latency, increasing reliability, and allowing real-time decision-making for improved operational efficiency. Sectors such as power grid, water infrastructure management, maritime transport, and process manufacturing, are already standing to gain substantial benefits from the adoption of Edge Computing, but also understand the security challenges that the distributed nature of these assets face.

The whitepaper covers two distinct architectural options that leverage Quantum Random Number Generators to fortify the integrity and protection of edge computing environments: embedded entropy and entropy as a service. With the information presented, the reader is equipped with a well-informed choice between them, to see which one adapts better to its particular use case.

Additionally, information about other critical aspects of edge security and quantum randomness are discussed, including security stack, remote software updates, edge application isolation, compliance, measurability speed and scalability.

All in all, we hope this is a great resource and a comprehensive guide to cutting-edge solutions that can boost essential aspects of security responsibilities for critical industries. Download here.
