Welcome to QuEST: The latest quantum and cybersecurity news brought to you by ID Quantique.
To begin this month, we are counting down to Inside Quantum Technology in May. As Platinum sponsor, ID Quantique will be participating in a number of live presentations including the opening Keynote on May 17th, as well as making some exciting announcements.
Since the turn of the millennium, there has been an alarming increase in the number of cyber attacks targeting critical infrastructure. Read our recent blog to understand the prevention methods that can be applied to secure critical infrastructure.
We have contributed to a report that reviews the current standardization and certification landscape of Quantum Key Distribution. As part of the OpenQKD project, the report provides a roadmap for future QKD standardization efforts, and is an important milestone for wide deployments of large scale QKD networks.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for video conference calls has been increasing, but many video platforms are vulnerable to hacks. Read our use case to learn how Seetalk Communications implemented a Quantum-enhanced crypto module combining IDQ’s Quantis QRNG chip with real-time video encryption technology from KCS.
XN Systems has developed a new Quantum-Safe VPN solution built on a standardized ETSI interface which is coupled with IDQ’s Clavis300 QKD platform. Read more about this joint solution.
At ID Quantique, we are well aware that Quantum technology has come a long way in the past 20 years. We would love to hear what YOU expect to happen as we enter the quantum age – please reply to share your thoughts!
Stay quantum curious.
