New insights into 'quantum physics' may offer 'fraud-proof' credit cards

A new research has suggested that fraud-proof credit cards are possible with quantum physics in an attempt to protect financial data and personal information from criminal activity. Researchers from the Netherlands has harnessed the power of quantum mechanics to create a fraud-proof method for authenticating a physical 'key' that is virtually impossible to thwart.

This innovative security measure, known as Quantum-Secure Authentication, can confirm the identity of any person or object, including debit and credit cards, even if essential information (like the complete structure of the card) has been stolen and it uses the unique quantum properties of light to ...
