Quantum cryptography company
26 Feb 2018, SK Telecom announced a US$65m strategic investment in ID Quantique. The South Korean telco had previously partnered with ID Quantique to develop a compact quantum random number generator.
Quantum safe cryptography – the big picture
Recently updated advice on quantum security technologies from the UK NCSC is bluntly sceptical about the promised benefits of quantum key distribution. This seems at odds with the scramble of governments around the world to promote the development of quantum networking technologies. Who is right? Future large scale quantum computers... Read more
Quantum Internet Outlook 2020
Fortunately preparations are well in hand to fix the Internet before large scale quantum computers can break it. But even in 2020, sensitive data intercepted and stored is already vulnerable to future attack. Companies must act to ensure they are not caught-out by the coming transition. In the longer term,...

Quantum safe cryptography – waiting to save the world
Future quantum computers will one day bring us many great benefits. Unfortunately they will also break many of the cryptographic protocols on which current Internet security depends. Google’s quantum supremacy breakthrough notwithstanding, this is still most likely many years off. However, sensitive data intercepted and stored today, or long lifecycle... Read more
