Researchers at Japanese Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT) found a new way to make encryption faster.
NTT's researchers found a way to use laser-light reflection in high speed data encryption. Random sequences of 0 and 1 are used in data encryption solutions. The random sequences are usually created with mathematical formulas.

A hacker could reverse engineer that formula by analyzing the data. Using something unpredictable such as a physical phenomena would make encryption much more secure.
Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT) developed an encryption system based on a laser. The setup consists of semiconductor laser whose output light is reflected by a mirror and injected back into the laser.
The irregular and complex oscillation in the light is generating the random numbers at a staggering speed of 4 gigabits per second according to Japanese Nikkei.

NTT says that it will take a few years to make Laser Light reflection encryption a commercial product.
