Using quantum technologies to intercept or “listen” the message will be simply impossible, since “phones” (special devices) will be connected by optical fiber, on which data will be transferred to in the form of light waves.

From these waves produce a secret key, which encrypts the signal of human speech, says the head of the project Sergey Kulik. – The practical value of the work is that callers can talk or exchange messages so that guaranteed, no one can eavesdrop.

This principle can be applied when transferring text files or, for example, banking transactions. The project on creation of secure networks included in the development plan of the University.

Note, the creation of such devices will help the authorities and secret services to get rid of hacker attacks, which recently acquired a mass character.
