QuEST: Quantum Era Security Times January 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 first issue of 2018, we examine the key findings of the Cloud Security Alliance’s newly published Quantum-Safe Security Awareness Survey.

We also round-up all the highlights of our 10th Winter School on cybersecurity entitled “The Coming-of-Age of Quantum Cybersecurity”.

We’re delighted to be exhibiting at Mobile World Congress 2018 from 26 February to 1 March in Barcelona. We are partnering with SK Telecom so come and see us at Hall 3 Stand 3H10.

Finally, we celebrate the successful launch of the PicSat nano-satellite, which has carried the first miniature ID101 Visible Photon Counter into orbit to play a crucial role in its year-long mission.

Best regards,

Kelly Richdale

Earlier this month, the Quantum-Safe Security Working Group of the Cloud Security Alliance published the results of its Quantum-Safe Security Awareness Survey.

We look at the key findings of the report, which has identified a disconnect between high awareness of quantum security issues but low readiness to act upon this knowledge effectively.

PicSat launch

PicSat Launch Puts IDQ in Orbit

In January, the PicSat nano-satellite was successfully launched into earth’s orbit, complete with a miniature ID101 Visible Photon Counter. IDQ is active in providing services and solutions in space, including our quantum crypto project QuSat.

As PicSat observes the Beta Pictoris star system, the ID101 will be used to provide extremely precise measurements of the number of photons hitting its telescope at any given time.
