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.
We begin with the exciting news that leading telecoms provider BT has built the UK’s first practical quantum-secured high-speed fibre network using equipment from ID Quantique.
Next, we are proud to announce a partnership with Quantum Xchange that will bring quantum-safe cryptography as a service to the U.S. market using QKD servers from IDQ and QX’s complementary Trusted Node technology.
We are also happy to announce our participation in the QUARTZ Satellite Cybersecurity Consortium, where we will join other research organisations, universities and industry experts to develop a system based on Quantum Cryptography that will generate encryption keys in space.
Finally, we would like to invite you to join us in Shanghai from 27-31 August for QCrypt 2018; the annual conference on quantum cryptography. There, you’ll also get to meet students and researchers alike who work across all aspects of the field.
