Quantum computers powerful enough to break the strongest classical encryption are at least a decade away, but the time to develop quantum safe encryption is now. In this opinion piece, Thomas Pöppelmann, a Senior Staff Engineer, Security Architecture and Cryptography Research at Infineon Technologies talks about the steps NIST and companies like Infineon are taking to make that happen.

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.
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.
Researchers at the University of Southern California have developed a technology called a frequency comb that could pave the way for quantum-encryption technologies to be used to protect mobile data and digital currencies.
