IDEMIA Secure Transactions and seven other French cybersecurity leaders unite


IDEMIA Secure Transactions has announced that it has recruited seven French cybersecurity leaders to work on developing large-scale quantum security solutions.

The Hyperform consortium, funded by France 2030 and the European Union, is dedicated to developing quantum-safe solutions capable of protecting sensitive data from potential attacks from quantum computers and unites several leading players in cybersecurity and post-quantum.

In addition ti IDEMIA Secure Transactions, project coordinator and a leading provider of secure solutions, these include CryptoNext, a provider of post quantum cryptography remediation solutions, Atempo. a provider of data protection solutions, Prim’X, a software publisher of encryption solutions, Synacktiv, an offensive security company and licensed testing laboratory (CESTI), CEA Leti, a global specialist in miniaturisation technologies enabling smart, energy-efficient and secure solutions for industry, INRIA, the French national institute for digital science and technology and the French cybersecurity agency (ANSSI), who will supervise the security and performance assessment of the solution.

Funded by the French government investment plan France 2030, and credits from the European Union, the consortium is a key element in the development of European sovereignty in post-quantum cryptography.

A sovereign quantum-safe offering at the forefront of global industrial research

The arrival of the quantum computer will jeopardize the security of sensitive data. The objective of Hyperform is to design quantum-safe solution that will protect government, enterprise and citizen data from the threat of quantum computer.

The consortium will set up a complete demonstrator for cloud data storage, documents archiving and online collaboration, based on sovereign encryption software used to protect the most critical information.

With more than 7.5 million euros invested by the consortium, France 2030 and the European Union, and 29 experts recruited, the Hyperform consortium has very strong ambitions.

Over the next three years, the Hyperform consortium will work to develop quantum-safe components so that service providers – including banks, governments, and software companies – can ensure unrivalled data security for their end-user services. The first end-to-end solutions will have the potential to set the standard for the whole industry.

As part of this project, the consortium will develop a next generation quantum-safe chip and create post-quantum cryptographic libraries, enhancing payment transactions as well as identity document reading.

In order to facilitate the transition to these advanced security measures, existing cybersecurity software will be modified. The performance and security of these new solutions will be assessed under the supervision of the ANSSI security agency.

“True to our commitment to provide service providers with state-of-the-art security services, we are very proud to lead the Hyperform consortium,” said Marc Bertin, Chief Technology Officer at IDEMIA Secure Transactions. “This collaborative project highlights our shared expertise in post-quantum technologies and our joint commitment to crafting solutions that meet industry demands.

“By working hand-in-hand with the ecosystem, we will be able to develop a robust quantum-safe framework, driving co-innovation and industry-wide progress.”
