QBN Events WG Quantum Communications and Cryptography

Data is the lifeblood of our digital society, not only in economics but also in our everyday life. Imagine a life without internet, imagine business and an industry without data analytics and IoT, imagine a future of hackable autonomous driving cars and unmanned aerial vehicles – the protection of our systems and infastructures as very sensitive and essential parts of our life is cruicial and fully relies on quantum technologies.



Today’s encryption is based on mathematical assumptions and is therefore fundamentally and especially crackable in the post quantum computing age. Quantum Communication offers a solution whose security is based on basic physical principles. Entanglement and teleportation allow the transmission of information for example by photons, atoms or electrons, whose encryption cannot be cracked and any attempt to eavesdrop can be unmasked.
