Industry Specification Group (ISG) on Quantum Key Distribution for Users (QKD)

Our work enables digital keys to be shared privately without relying on computational complexity. The security offered by QKD will not be vulnerable to future advances in algorithms, computational power or the emergence of a quantum computer.

We bring together important actors from science, industry and commerce to address standardization issues in quantum cryptography and associated quantum technologies. The work is specifying QKD system interfaces, implementation security requirements and optical characterization of QKD systems and their components. We are contributing towards making QKD a robust deployable solution to protect next-generation telecommunications.
