Welcome to the latest edition of the Quantum Era Security Times, brought to you by ID Quantique, the world leader in quantum-safe cryptography solutions.
This month, we are pleased to introduce our new Centauris CV1000 Virtualised Encryptor, the first crypto-agile Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) encryption solution designed to deliver concurrent multi-layer encryption across large-scale virtualised WAN.
Next, we review a report released by the Hudson Institute earlier this month, in which it looks at the national security threat posed by quantum computers and the state of quantum cybersecurity.
We also look at a new report from the IBM Institute for Business Value that highlights the potential of quantum technologies to become a ‘double-edged sword’ and speak about the importance of randomness in a quantum world.
We would like to invite you to join us in Zurich for the Quantum Industry Day in Switzerland this October. Co-organised by ID Quantique, key stakeholders from the worlds of academia and industrial R&D will gather to exchange ideas and accelerate the development of new quantum products.
Finally, we’re happy to announce that you can now reserve your place at Winter School 2019. We’ll be hosting our 11th annual school on 19-25 January 2019 and the theme this year will be ‘Quantum Cybersecurity in the Real World’. We look forward to seeing you there!
