Hosted by the Ministry of Science and ICT and co-organized by the Artificial Intelligence Semiconductor Forum, the Next Generation Intelligent Semiconductor Business Group, and the Information and Communication Planning Institute, the 2021 AI Semiconductor Future Technology Conference” was held successfully on November 26 with a large number of key industry, academia, research and government officials at the center of the development of the artificial intelligence semiconductor industry.” At the meeting, OctatcO drew attention by demonstrating its fingerprint recognition security key “EzQuant,” which is applied with quantum random number generation technology.
The conference, which marks its second anniversary this year, has been set up as a venue for communication to share the latest technology and policy trends of domestic and foreign artificial intelligence semiconductor experts in order to keep pace with the rapidly changing technology trend under the theme of “Start of New Innovation: The World Led by Artificial Intelligence Semiconductor,” and an exhibition booth has also been set up to promote the achievements of the domestic artificial intelligence semiconductor R&D business.
OctatcO, which is participating in a project to develop ultra-low-power artificial intelligence processor technology with Seoul National University and Kyung Hee University under the auspices of the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (hereinafter referred to as “ETRI”), has attracted the attention of many visitors by demonstrating the world’s first fingerprint recognition security key “EzQuant,” which was released by ETRI’s booth.
‘Easyquant’ combines quantum random number generation technology with card-type fingerprint security keys based on FIDO, which can be certified online. ‘Easyquant’ can be applied to various fields as it can be linked to PC login, which was previously performed with biometric authentication, and all certificates necessary for work such as in-house groupware, ERP, and CRM. With support for FIDO standard certification technology and Windows Hello and NFC standards, it can also be used for all web certification services that provide FIDO certification services such as MS Office 365, Azure Cloud, Google Gmail, YouTube, Facebook, and Salesforce, and also for office access.
“Easy Quant” is the world’s first product equipped with QRNG at the “Global FIDO Interoperability Test” organized by FIDO Global Alliance in March this year and can be applied to FIDO-based services worldwide. Accordingly, the biometric security key applied with QRNG technology is expected to expand its use to financial services, defense, online administration, and smart offices in the future.
