Welcome to QuEST: The latest quantum and cybersecurity news brought to you by ID Quantique.
ID Quantique and SK Broadband have been selected to build a pilot QKD infrastructure in public, medical and industrial sectors in Korea. The New Deal will see SK Broadband using ID Quantique’s leading QKD products to connect multiple sites and ensure ultra-secure communications, creating one of the largest operational QKD networks on the globe.
We also recently announced that our work at ITU has resulted in two draft recommendations for security protocols in QKD networks being consented as international standards. This represents a step forward on our roadmap to bringing standardization in the field.
The latest Quantum Computing review reports on a busy summer of significant announcements from the major players in quantum computing and a glimpse of the future through Google and IBM’s quantum development roadmaps.
Lastly, we invite you to join us for Inside Quantum Technology Europe, a summit looking at the commercial future of all areas of quantum technology, and CSA EMEA Congress, which provides both educational and practical advice across cloud leadership.

ID Quantique and SK Broadband join forces on “Digital New Deal”
We have been selected to build a pilot QKD infrastructure in public, medical and industrial sectors in Korea, creating one of the largest operational QKD networks on the globe.
South Korea’s ambitious New Deal plan covers artificial intelligence, 5G mobile connectivity as well as quantum technologies and aims at creating future growth engines for the post-Corona era. Building a pilot quantum key distribution (QKD) infrastructure in Korea is a priority to enhance security in 16 use cases in the public, medical, and industrial sectors.
ID Quantique and SK Telecom move forward in their standardization roadmap
Two draft recommendations covering QKD networks have been consented as international standards.
The recommendations include a framework for defining threats, requirements and methods for QKD networks, and specifications for the security of hybrid key methods.
