Traffic Data Cyber-Security Works… For Now
Russian company Quanttelecom is developing a quantum communication technology for protection of transport-related data against man-in-the-middle attacks.

So far, the developer has made three real-world implementations in the national road transport system, including 500, 125 and 50 miles fiber-optic lines. As quantum technologies advance at pace, more companies are thinking how to apply them to the challenges facing road transport. In 2018 , we published a piece on the quantum computing partnership between VW and D-Wave aimed at solving complex tasks of traffic optimization.

Using quantum physics for data transit is a different story. While quantum computers are super-fast, state-of-the-art quantum communication lines are, on the contrary, extremely slow (or, more precisely, narrowband). Yet their ultimate advantage is theoretically absolute protection against eavesdropping.

Insurers’ Role in Promoting Connected Car Data Sharing
Making driving data available through a data exchange offers substantial business benefits for insurance carriers.

Benefits, not the least of which, is the ability to use, with proper consent, actual driving behavior versus proxy data that generally includes marital status or credit scores in the quoting and underwriting process. Driving data also creates opportunities for insurers to offer more personalized products and services to improve loyalty and consumer experiences with insurance overall.
