Qosmos - Entropy as a Service Architecture

Qosmos solves the “Entropy Starvation” problem of the systems irrespective of their presence in cloud, embedded or
an IOT devices. Qosmos provides the highest randomness, enables secure method of providing the keys ensuring
unconditional security.

There are 3 main parts in the architecture

Tropos (QRNG)

QNu Tropos is quantum entropy device which is the root of randomness. The random numbers are generated from a quantum source and then transferred to applications as a service through Qosmos architecture. Tropos generates continuous stream of random bits which is fed to EaaS Server.

EaaS (Entropy as a Service) Server

EaaS server acts as a bridge between Tropos and client application. EaaS server accesses the random number stream Tropos which is signed, encrypted, and sent along with timestamp to the client application. EaaS server architecture is scalable and can include many of the servers across the world. NIST recommends access from multiple EaaS servers to increase the security of the seed.

Client HRT or Application

HRT (Hardware Root of Trust) is a classical computing device with secure hardware component for storing, seeding and generation of cryptographic keys. HRT would normally be TPM, Intel IPT, ARM TrustZone, HSM or any encryption key generation device. It can also be combined with a client software application which enables communication between EaaS server and client hardware. It is not required for the client system to have dedicated hardware, but the hardware availability will make the process more secure.

Applications of Qosmos - Entropy as a Service

The applications are transparent to random numbers required for security purposes. Any application that uses TLS will
automatically get the random numbers via Qosmos, through the TLS library. This way, no application needs to be
changed to use random numbers.​

The SSL handshake used in the https connection of a website will use digital certificated based on PKI. Now as the whole infrastructure is moving to TLS 1.3 for more security, the master secret key generated from client and server random should be obtained from Qosmos for higher security. This essentially replaces the PRF (Pseudo Random Function) which generates deterministic randomness.

Apart from using a https -encrypted tunnel, emails are encrypted using a public and private key pair generated from randomness of system (key strokes, mouse movements etc.,). Instead we can use a TLS encryption based on Qosmos supported by Google, Microsoft, and Virtu etc., and making data exchange more secure.

With video conferencing becoming a medium to share secret information, the security need also has increased. Introduction of random seed from Qosmos to generate initial authentication keys and then using Qosmos OTP for continuous authentication will continuously provide security.

The PKI keys like RSA are created in firewall to allow only the right user into the network. The firewalls do not typically have enough entropy to create unpredictable keys making them vulnerable to attacks. Integrating Qosmos to generate the keys will increase security of firewalls by many folds.

Data at rest and motion are important for data backup & recovery. Qosmos will be used for continuous authentication for each data transfer to maintain the security in motion. Clients have already adopted HSM or KMS for data at rest whose security will increase when they use Qosmos random numbers as seed to generate the keys.

RMM software continuously collects and monitors data logs from Servers and desktops that is critical. Qosmos will help in generating OTP keys for present PKI keys used for encryption and continuous authentication for security between different data collection points.

Digital signatures are a crucial part of PKI infrastructure and with increase in demand due to digital adoption, the randomness generated now becomes deterministic. Integrating Qosmos to present certificate generation systems will increase the security and start the organization journey towards quantum-safe security.
