The progress in developing quantum computers has threatened the commonly used symmetric and asymmetric key cryptographic systems, which is used by all the existing blockchains.
An Ozone node creates a specialized channel called a quantum tunnel to communicate data with another Ozone node.
A quantum tunnel secures its data using algorithms provided by Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC).
Ozone Chain uses Lattice-based PQC, which is the main method being promulgated in next-generation US NIST algorithm development.
Lattice-based cryptography uses constructions of cryptographic primitives that involve lattices, either in the construction itself or in the security proof.
Unlike RSA, Diffie-Hellman or elliptic-curve cryptosystems, which could be broken by a quantum computer, Ozone Chain’s lattice-based constructions are resistant to attack by both classical and quantum computers
