South Korea's DGB Daegu Bank has teamed up with SK Telecom to boost its mobile app's security with 5G quantum cryptography technology.
The IM Bank app will enable Samsung Galaxy A Quantum owners to use the handset's quantum random number generator (QRNG) for security.
The QRNG chipset embedded in the Galaxy A Quantum phone generates true random numbers that cannot be predicted, says the telco.
The technology will be used for one-time passwords when IM Bank customers transfer money or open new accounts. The partners are also exploring other uses.
