QuEST: Quantum Era Security Times December 2018

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 our last edition of 2018 we look back at a great year with growing interest in quantum cryptography across a number of regions and industries.

We also reflect upon some of our key milestones, which include investments from SK Telecom and Deutsche Telekom and our global expansion to the US and Korea.

Below we take a look at a new consensus study report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine that discusses the progress and prospects of quantum computing and dedicates a section to quantum cryptography.

We then address a new review paper that sets out a roadmap for quantum internet development that sees the technology passing through six unique phases and names QKD as an indispensable technology.

We hope you can join us in Abu Dhabi, UAE, from 17-29 February for IDEX 2019 – a biannual defence exhibition where we will be exhibiting QRNG and QKD.

Finally, we would like to wish you and your team season’s greetings and all the best for 2019.

Best regards,

Kelly Richdale

The progress and prospects of quantum computing

The progress and prospects of quantum computing

A new consensus study report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine provides a wide-ranging review of the quantum computing field and the impact of the technology on cryptography.

The report provides an introduction to the field and “assesses the feasibility and implications of creating a functional quantum computer capable of addressing real-world problems.” Importantly, it also discusses the crucial role of quantum cryptography. It is notable for having contributors from a wide range of academic and industry experts.

Scientists set out vision of a quantum internet

Scientists set out vision of a quantum internet

A new review paper sets out a roadmap for quantum internet development that sees the technology passing through six unique phases and names QKD as an indispensable technology.

The benefits of quantum computing – from its immense computing power to its inherent security – make it an ideal communications medium, but technological barriers have tended to make progress difficult to judge. This report sets out a six-phase roadmap that will see the quantum internet develop from its infancy into a fully-fledged communications method.
