This paper from the Cloud Security Alliance profiles two of the principal quantum-safe security technologies: Quantum-Resistant Algorithms and Quantum Key Distribution.
Today, a significant portion of the security community is not familiar with quantum-safe cryptography and QKD. It is important that the IT industry begins to develop “quantum risk-management plans” for an orderly transition to a fully quantum-safe security infrastructure.
Quantum-related technologies have the potential to disrupt a wide range of IT applications. In this paper, ATOS explores the potential impact on the Financial Services sector.
While this paper focuses on the benefits that quantum technology could bring to the finance sector, the potential applications are very much broader. Many of the technologies we take for granted may be directly impacted by the emergence of quantum technology.
D-Wave, a pioneer in the development of quantum computing systems and software has announced the general commercial availability of the D-Wave 2000Q™ quantum computer.
With 2000 qubits, the new system can solve larger problems than was previously possible, providing a big step forward in applications for optimisation, modelling, cybersecurity, machine learning and sampling.
