(AJUBusinessDaily) Quantum information technology proposed by South Korea has been adopted under the theme of a white paper published by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), an international standards organization, according to the Korean Agency for Technology and Standards (KATS), a government agency that leads national standards and technical evaluation.
IEC’s Market Strategy Board publishes white papers and technology report that predicts future technology trends and analyzes market needs to determine future standardization directions. The Seoul government will establish a new task force involving experts to push for the publication of IEC’s 2021 white paper for quantum information technology.
The white paper would include the market status of quantum information technology, R&D trends, direction and strategy for standardization, future vision, impact and recommendations on global industries and regulatory authorities, Lee’s body said, adding it would help South Korea secure an advantageous position in international standardization and enhance its status in quantum information technology.
SK Telecom (SKT), a top mobile carrier in South Korea, offers specialized 5G services with ultra-low latency while addressing potential security threats with a quantum cryptographic communication solution. SKT’s secure communications system for quantum-safe data protection has been applied to Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power (KHNP) to address concerns about hacking and security threats.
