All forms of encryption require a seed key. It is essential that these be unknown by an adversary and not predictable, yet until now there has been no means of determining this. IronBridge is the first means of producing certifiably random keys, relying upon the quantum effects of entanglement and superposition. I will bring our IronBridge demonstration box in this presentation, performing a live demonstration of how this is done and explaining how it can be incorporated in your existing encryption system. I welcome any questions on the underlying science, differences between other forms of (pseudo)random key generation, and other applications including QKD.
