ETSI is jointly organising a webinar on “Cybersecurity in the quantum era” with ITU-T FG-QIT4N as part of the opening of the cybersecurity track at The World Summit on the Information Society Forum 2021 to take place Thursday 8 April 15:00 to 17:30 CEST (UTC+2).
Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) and Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) continue to be the subject of discussion within the cybersecurity community stemming from questions surrounding the practical implementation and perceived strengths and weaknesses of both methods.The webinar will assume a basic awareness of QKD and PQC as proposed solutions to maintain cybersecurity in the quantum era. It will examine them by discussing the merits and perceptions of each in the notional context of what may constitute a solution that is “good enough” from the perspective of data security truths and acceptances as well as practical scalability due to Physical Layer limitations and integration, and deployment costs. Cybersecurity roadmaps in the quantum era will also be explored and the roles QKD and PQC may play in a co-existing landscape.
The event is open to anyone and will be suitable for a broad audience with interests in these questions.
