The International Transportation Innovation Center (ITIC) in Greenville, S.C. said it has signed a memorandum of understanding with SK Telecom to collaborate in the development of quantum cryptography technologies.

Under the MoU, ITIC and SK Telecom will jointly develop and pursue standardization of hacking-prevention technologies to protect connected vehicles.

The International Transportation Innovation Center (ITIC) is creating one of the world´s leading testbeds to validate secure networked transportation technologies. SK Telecom is the operator of Korea´s largest mobile network and leads the world in the development of quantum cryptographic technologies.

Located at the South Carolina Technology & Aviation Center (SCTAC) in the heart of North America´s largest automotive cluster, the 559-acre International Transportation Innovation Center (ITIC) is a research-based testing facility designed to promote innovation. Created as collaboration between a number of automotive leaders and partners — including SCTAC, the Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) — ITIC is a game changer.
