Practical quantum computing isn’t here yet. But a new survey by Digicert suggests that isn’t stopping IT pros from prepping for a post-quantum reality…even if they aren’t exactly sure what that means.
The arrival of functional quantum computers may be closer than you think. I’m joined by Avesta Hojjati, Head of DigiCert Labs and Brian LaMacchia, Distinguished Engineer and Head of the Security and Cryptography Group at Microsoft Research to talk about coming quantum revolution and what it means for security.
Quantum principles are set to transform the next generation of Internet security, with new quantum-based technologies on tap to improve encryption and data communication which researchers believe could solve some of the limitations with current technology.
In-brief: Governments may worry about the democratization of strong encryption. But a bigger problem may be that the encryption we think is strong really isn’t, says Richard Moulds of the firm Whitewood. In this podcast, we talk about the.growing difficulty of generating truly random numbers in cloud environments and on the Internet of Things and how ‘entropy as a service’ may be the answer.
In-brief: NIST is asking for help designing post-quantum encryption algorithms to protect data and communications.
