Rivada Networks Supports Efforts to Establish Global Quantum Security Technology Standards
(BusinessWire) Rivada Networks has joined with 17 other members of the Quantum Alliance Initiative to submit the first global Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) and Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG) recommendations to the International Telecommunications Union—Telecommunication Standardization Section (ITU-T) meeting in Geneva, scheduled for January 22-30, 2019.
“This is an important step in advancing quantum computing into the main stream,” Clint Smith, Chief Scientist at Rivada Networks, said. “Existing quantum computing needs encryption methods which are in compliance with existing specifications,” he continued. “This recommendation would enable quantum computing to be allowed for existing security work.”
