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.
This month, we are pleased to announce that, working with our partners SK Telecom and Nokia, we’ve successfully delivered an Optical Transport System with Quantum Key Distribution for Nokia; bringing us a step closer to wide-scale quantum communications deployments.
Next, we look at the crucial role of quantum random number generation in securing blockchains, as the technology plays a growing role in global information exchange.
We also discuss a landmark month for quantum technologies in the US, which includes the passing of the National Quantum Initiative Act and the announcement of a strategic overview for quantum information science.
We’re excited to say that you can now view the preliminary programme and book your tickets online for IDQ’s Winter School 2019!
Finally, we hope you can join us in Bejing in November for the ETSI IQC Quantum Safe Workshop, which will bring together diverse players in the quantum-safe cybersecurity to share knowledge and exchange ideas.
