About Crypto Quantique

Crypto Quantique is the first software and IP (Intellectual Property) company to create true end-to-end IoT security products that can be seamlessly integrated throughout the entire supply chain, from supplying security IP to the chip designers to helping OEMs to connect millions of devices to the cloud with our patented software platform.

Get to know our leadership team

Dr Shahram Mossayebi (CEO, PhD in Post-Quantum Cryptography) and Dr Patrick Camilleri (VP of Operations, PhD. Eng) co-founded Crypto Quantique. Spotting a huge vulnerability in current IoT chip designs, they invented the world’s first proven quantum-driven secure silicon chip design, called QDID. While this solves one piece of the security puzzle, they noticed that a device is only as secure as it’s weakest point, which led to the creation of QuarkLink, an IoT software platform that helps device manufactures provision, connect and manage their devices with multiple cloud service providers with secures the rest of the supply chain. QuarkLink is an independent product which can be used with any IoT device and not limited to devices with a QDID built in.

Mossayebi and Camilleri’s groundbreaking technology simplifies connectivity for all areas of the supply chain, driving differentiation and value for all segments of the supply chain through taking security seriously. Increasing trust along the supply chain bridges the IoT scaling gap holding back IoT ecosystem innovation.

Research and Product Development

Making IoT devices secure is a complex, multi-dimensional challenge. Legislation is forcing more companies to dramatically update their systems. The threat landscape is evolving, including issues emerging for post-quantum cryptography. A multidisciplinary team is required to address the challenges of the present and the future.

Our expert team is a combination of experienced, skilled, and ambitious experts in the fields of cryptography, software engineers, electrical engineers, and quantum physics.

Crypto Quantique has many patents in both software and hardware IP (pending and granted) as the team continues to innovate new IoT security products.
