Panel - Quantum Science Meets Cyber Reality

  • TYPE: Plenary Session DATE: Thursday, October 10, 2019 TIME: 09:30-10:30 LOCATION: Ballroom
Conference Agenda

The panel will take you on a journey from the origins of quantum science through to how it is applied to today's cybersecurity challenges and applications. The promise and full potential of quantum computing is still somewhere off in the distance though great strides are being made. 

While quantum computers are important the panel will talk to how quantum sciences are being used today for communication security with quantum key distribution, differences between entangled photon and single photon cryptography, fiber optic vs free space applications, quantum random number generators, the use of QKD within the 5G ecosystem, quantum science international standards, US and international policy issues, US competition with other international players and what to expect in the future for quantum science applications in cybersecurity.

Participants will walk away with a better understanding of:

 1) How quantum science is being applied to cybersecurity today.

 2) US and international policy and standards issues facing the application of quantum science.

 3) How quantum science is being applied to cybersecurity applications today with quantum key distribution.

 4) Basic knowledge of how entangled photon cryptography is different from the use of single photon cryptography.

 5) Future use of quantum science for cybersecurity.
