The 9th Winter School on Quantum Cyber Security will, once again, be held in the Swiss ski resort of Les Diablerets between 14th -20th January 2017.
Registration for the 9th Winter School is well under way and we are delighted to confirm some exciting speakers.
Key faculty members for this year’s event include Prof. Artur Ekert, a pioneer in QKD, Prof Michele Mosca, co-founder of the Institute of Quantum Computing, Prof Sandu Popescu, Dr Jean-Philippe Aumasson, Prof Hugo Zbinden and Dr Christoph Marquardt.
When it comes to cryptography, entropy (randomness) is the key to security. However, not all sources of randomness are the same.
In a recent IDG Network World article, author Lucian Constantin points to research by the University of Pennsylvania, INRIA, CNRS and Universite de Lorraine that exposes a serious implementation weakness in public key cryptography.
A period of sustained innovation in the field of quantum computing has seen development timelines getting shorter and experts predicting viable machines within a decade.
In a recent Next Big Future blog, the author explored some of the recent advances in quantum computing. In this article we take a look at the leading competitors in the quantum computing race; checking in on Rigetti, Google and Microsoft as they compete for quantum supremacy.
