Quantum Computing & Security: What & Why?

My Session Status

Track description: By exploiting the properties of quantum physics, quantum computing represents a fundamental paradigm shift. Recent advancements in this field are staggering and pose new challenges – some are predicting a dramatic threat to encrypted data and communication, bringing to a “quantum apocalypse”. 

Actually, teleportation of information via entanglement could offer the highest security within a quantum information network. And in the short term, two alternatives could provide security: Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC), based on the hardness of the mathematical constructions, and Quantum Key Distribution (QKD), based on quantum physics.

In this track we will explain what quantum technologies are bringing and how they impact security how to build the next generation of secure communications and quantum internet how to protect classical data and communications (quantum-safe) give you an overview of market trends, ecosystem, challenges and vision.

Session description: In this introductory session, we will explain what quantum technologies are bringing and how they impact security. We will then focus on quantum cryptography, with some examples.
