Welcome to QuEST: The latest quantum and cybersecurity news brought to you by ID Quantique.
In recent news, as part of OPENQKD, a collaborative European project that installs and runs testbeds in several European locations to showcase QKD solutions under a variety of different use cases, we have, together with PSNC, recently completed two major implementations.
The recent string of cyber attacks in the US has brought cybersecurity to the top of the Biden administration’s agenda. In our latest blog, we explore the impact of the recent Executive Order: Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity.
ICTK has partnered with ID Quantique to secure IoT devices with Quantum PUF technology paired with QRNG. This partnership will ensure that security is inherent from chip-level up; providing end users with a secure and trusted device, without compromising on ease of use.
Join us for the Quantum Industry Day in Switzerland, an online conference running from 5-6 October. Some of our IDQ colleagues will be giving talks on subjects ranging from QRNG in mass-market applications to space communication. We hope to see you there!
Stay quantum curious.
PSNC & IDQ COLLABORATE TO PROVIDE THE WORLD’S FIRST
CROSS-BORDER QKD CONNECTION
As part of the OPENQKD initiative, Poznań Supercomputing & Networking Center (PSNC) and IDQ have recently completed two major projects: Implementing the first QKD infrastructure on an operational network in Poland, and the world’s first cross-border QKD connection – linking Cieszyn in Poland with Ostrava in the Czech Republic.
US GOVERNMENT DOUBLES DOWN ON CYBERSECURITY
