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 this edition, we discuss the exciting and controversial news that Google has achieved quantum supremacy. The paper that appeared online prompted mixed reactions, before being taken down.
We are pleased to have played an important role in the ongoing standardisation of QRNG, after a draft recommendation was consented as an international standard at ITU.
We are also happy to announce our partnership with renowned IT service provider dacoso, offering quantum-safe data encryption to their customers.
Then, we would like to invite you to the latest ETSI/IQC Quantum Safe Cryptography Workshop on 5-7 November in Seattle. Members of the IDQ team will be talking on QKD in 5G networks, quantum standards and quantum-safe security for blockchain keys, so it would be great to see you there too!
Finally, we are proud to announce we have been awarded the 2019 Innovation Prize, in recognition of our innovative role in quantum technologies.
