United States : ALLIED MINDS funds CRADA to develop cutting-edge cryptography technology

September 1, 2014

There's been a major push to keep technology that is commercialized from the state's national labs here, but it doesn't always work like that.

A science and technology development and commercialization firm in Boston, Allied Minds, has financed a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with Los Alamos National Lab to create some of the lab's state-of-the-art cryptography technology.

Vice president at Allied Minds, John Serafini, said before it moves to Boston,the work may only last six more months in Los Alamos.

The firm recently said it licensed quantum cryptography technology from LANL. It added that the technology can help safeguard consumers and businesses from data-security attacks.

The VP said : "We've funded a CRADA with LANL for the architects of the original IP, the guys who developed the tech. We are going to fund the CRADA in New Mexico; what happens with it after that, I don't know."
