(CWI.nl) Together with Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI), Radboud University and other international partners, IBM Research has developed quantum-safe algorithms for securing data. The new algorithms, which are part of the CRYSTALS suite, are based on the hardness of mathematical problems that have not succumbed to any algorithmic attacks, either classical or quantum. The team…..

(PopularMechanics) A new high definition radar system that could change the nature of warfare has been demonstrated for the first time. The result, quantum radar, is a high definition detection system that provides a much more detailed image of targets while itself remaining difficult to detect. Today’s radars can detect targets very well, but provide…..

(CloudWedge) IBM intends to begin offering quantum-safe cryptography on its public cloud architecture starting next year. The service is designed to anticipate the production of quantum computers and a potential attack from one of these machines. Quantum-safe cryptography uses an algorithm that is resistant to attacks from both quantum computers as well as regular computers……
