A number of initiatives worldwide are working to define the standardization and certification frameworks for the area of Quantum Key Distribution.
Together with other partners involved in the European Commission’s Open QKD project, ID Quantique has contributed to a report offering a comprehensive review of the current standardization landscape, and identifying where there are gaps in standardization.
The report aims to improve awareness of the ongoing standardization processes so that industry entities can avoid contradictions in standards and focus on the areas that need definition.
