Quantum memories are devices that store a quantum states. Today, they are one of the most complex areas of quantum technology currently being developed; on par with quantum computers themselves. Quantum memories are seen as the key to next generation networking nodes, quantum repeaters, and while quantum memories may come to have many applications, it is in quantum repeaters that

The Post Quantum Cryptography (PQC) market is one of few real world markets the industry analyst’s much used hockey stick curve actually makes much sense. As quantum computers capable of breaking popular encryption codes get nearer and nearer users will become more prone to deploying PQC and that kind of consumer behavior necessitates exponential growth. Opinions differ on whether the

Randomness is vital for data security and Quantum random number generators (QRNGs) are now being offered as a premium solution to random number generation. In our opinion represent a real innovation in the RNG market, although, as we will explain not for the reasons that are usually given.  The physical principle behind QRNGs is rather simple – a weak laser

The simplest way to access quantum computational power at a distance is through cloud technologies. This is already a service provided by several companies, with time being available on a scale of minutes to hours, while prices range from free to several thousands of dollars per hour. Given the high costs of quantum computers, the cloud delivery strategy (1) expands

Many millions of the projected devices in the “Internet of Things” (IOT) will be wireless, very low power battery-operated devices with small microcontrollers and small memories. Current public key encryption will leave such devices vulnerable to attack by as quantum computers become available. Today’s post quantum cryptography techniques require more power and memory than many of these IOT devices possess.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE) just announced the acquisition of supercomputer maker Cray Inc. (NASDAQ: CRAY) for $35.00 per share. What does all of this mean for quantum computing? In the short term, Inside Quantum Technology believes the answer is “very little.” In the longer term, say five years, it’s a “definite maybe.” We note that: • Before the breakup

There are two camps in quantum cryptography. The first is the hardware-based approach; Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) which uses fundamental quantum mechanics principles to facilitate secure communication without interception. The second is a software approach Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC). PQC is based upon new algorithms that, unlike RSA, are not based upon factoring a large semi-prime numbers. In the future, large

At Inside Quantum Technology’s Boston Summit, perhaps the liveliest panel was on the topic of the quantum threat to Blockchain. Monica Quaintance, a New York based data engineer for Kadena, which sells secure blockchain solutions for business data, and Kiran Bhagotra, a cybersecurity entrepreneur who founded ProtectBox found themselves squarely at odds over what degree of risk emerging quantum technology

At a conference hosted by Inside Quantum Technology in Boston this month, Dr. Mark Jackson of Cambridge Quantum Computing announced that 99% of all online encryption will be vulnerable to quantum enabled hacking. Therefore, he said, post-quantum cryptography (PQC) is very important for civic, industrial and commercial Internet of Things (IoT) applications and for 5G networks. Both Kiran Bhaghota of
