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.
In this, our last issue for 2017, we are pleased to announce IDQ’s new collaboration with ArianeGroup – a prime contractor and design authority for the next generation launcher, Ariane 6 – a collaboration that reinforces ID Quantique’s expertise within the space sector.
The recent publication of Deloitte’s annual Tech Trends report highlights Quantum Encryption as an ‘exponential technology’. We discuss these findings in our latest article here, where you can also download the report.
We conclude with a review of a new protocol from the United States, derived from IDQ’s COW Protocol, which carries the promise of practical high-speed key distribution, with a complete security analysis.
Finally, we would like to take the opportunity to say Happy Holidays and wish you all the best for 2018.
IDQ is to supply high-reliability, single-photon technologies to ArianeGroup, under a programme funded by ESA, on behalf of the European Space Agency (ESA).
ArianeGroup is a prime contractor and design authority for Ariane 6 – the next generation Launcher. This collaboration reinforces ID Quantique’s experience in the space sector and guarantees the long-term support of its products.
A new protocol from the United States, derived from IDQ’s COW protocol, carries the promise of practical high-speed key distribution. The team from several leading universities and research institutes also present a complete security analysis.
This exemplifies the fact that QKD is entering a new phase, bringing practical quantum-safe security to cyberspace.
