Sophia Antipolis, 8 September 2016
The 4th ETSI/IQC Workshop will take place in Toronto, Canada, from 19 to 21 September 2016. The event is organized by ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) and the Institute for Quantum Computing and sponsored by ISARA and Evolutionq.
It will open on 19 September with a special Executive Track intended for business and security executives who need to develop strategies for a quantum-safe future. The sessions on 20 and 21 September will feature an in depth technical workshop designed to help industry participants move towards a standardized approach to quantum-safe cryptographic solutions.
As quantum computing is no doubt going to disrupt the IT landscape, a new suite of tools resilient to quantum computers must be deployed and standardized in order to maintain reliable cyber systems and ensure confidentiality.
This three-day workshop will bring together players from the quantum-safe cybersecurity community at large, from around the world. It will showcase the most recent requirements from industry and government, and cutting-edge solutions coming out of the latest research studies.
Attendees and presenters will include experts from the fields of post-quantum (quantum resistant) cryptography, quantum key distribution (QKD), theoretical and commercial integration of cryptography and security tools, first-adopters of quantum-safe tools from industry and government, and members of standards bodies.
