NATO works on quantum cryptography with Malta

Quantum technology will soon change our security landscape. While this technology could represent a ground-breaking solution to complex problems in a number of fields, its potential can also be disruptive. NATO’s Science for Peace and Security (SPS) Programme is supporting two projects to secure our digital communications for the post-quantum era. Quantum technologies use the […]

Securing the “internet of things” in the quantum age

MIT researchers have developed a novel cryptography circuit that can be used to protect low-power “internet of things” (IoT) devices in the coming age of quantum computing. Quantum computers can in principle execute calculations that today are practically impossible for classical computers. Bringing quantum computers online and to market could one day enable advances in […]

Why Quantum Computing’s Time Is Now

Most technologists have some basic understanding of quantum computing.  Quantum bits are represented by qubits, and information isn’t simply a zero or one, it can be both at the same time, representing much more information.  A quantum effect known as entanglement linking two particles allows instantaneous communication.  Ultimately, quantum computing promises to be a disruptive technology with such dramatic speed […]

Circuit Secures the IoT Against Quantum Attack

One of the most frequently mentioned fears about future quantum computers is that they will someday crack our encryption codes and lay all our digital secrets bare. Despite it being a truly far-off possibility, cryptographers are already taking the threat very seriously. The solution seems to be to develop one or more classes of encryption […]
