IDQ is delighted to announce it has become a member of ETSI, the European Telecommunications Standards Institute, which produces globally-applicable standards for information and communications technologies.
As an ETSI member, IDQ is now an active participant in two emerging technology committees: Quantum Safe Cryptography and Quantum Key Distribution.
Information security standards are essential to ensure interoperability among systems and networks, compliance with legislation and adequate levels of security. These standards provide the means for protecting users and creating a more secure and profitable environment for the industrial sector.
IDQ is happy to be part of the committees responsible for the development of standards for Quantum-Safe Cryptography and Quantum Key Distribution (QKD). The aim of which is to commercialise quantum technologies, bridging the gap between the research laboratory and the real world.
For further details about the scope of the 2 quantum technology committees:
ETSI produces globally-applicable standards for Information and Communications Technologies, including fixed, mobile, radio, converged, broadcast and Internet technologies. Officially recognised by the European Union, it boasts membership of over 800 organisations from more than 60 countries worldwide. Its standards for GSM™ DECT™ Smart Cards and electronic signatures have helped to transform modern life across the globe.
