Three startups have announced error-correction breakthroughs that could accelerate enterprise adoption of quantum computing.
Experts agree that future quantum computers will break most current encryption when they become sufficiently powerful. The code to do this – Shor’s algorithm – has already been written. It just needs a powerful enough quantum computer to run on. According to the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), a suitable quantum computer will be available by
The potential for attackers to use quantum computers to crack public key cryptography algorithms is driving research and investment in developing quantum-safe networks.
Pharmaceutical companies are using quantum computers to make drug discovery faster and safer.
A new report from Enter Quantum explains how supply chain enterprises are turning to quantum computers to solve routing problems. Finding optimal delivery routes gets incrementally more difficult the more stops are added. Factor in the other variables that might affect the supply chain and you quickly exceed the constraints of current classical computing, leading
The financial services industry has been one of the first to benefit from emerging quantum computing solutions, which can support use cases including targeting and prediction, trading optimization and risk profiling.
Data center cybersecurity managers need to start planning now for when quantum computing breaks current encryption standards.
DATA CENTER KNOWLEDGE–With multi-cloud already here and quantum computing on the horizon, most should probably leave encryption to the experts.
DATA CENTER KNOWLEDGE–What could scientists’ recent success in teleporting quantum states mean for data centers of the future?
In the arms race between white and black hats, the infosec industry looks to quantum cryptography and quantum key distribution (QKD). That may be just part of the answer, however.
“Quantum-proof” encryption algorithms won’t be entirely quantum-proof. Quantum key distribution networks could be the answer.
Newer isn’t always better, at least where cybersecurity is concerned. For some applications, these older technologies are still effective ways to protect data and systems.
Chinese companies actively productizing quantum key distribution, which pushes communications security to a new level Earlier this month, China’s official news agency Xinhua announced the launch of a secure quantum communications network between Shanghai and Beijing. The 2,000 kilometer (1,243 mile) backbone will be used for military and government communications, but also in commercial areas
Researchers at top university and corporate labs around the world are in a furious race to create the first practical, usable quantum computer. Quantum computers — which use quantum bits, or qubits — are capable of running computations impossible for existing technology. It promises to open up new possibilities in areas like medical research, artificial
Whether quantum computing promises to make current encryption methods obsolete.
