Cloud Security in the Quantum Era: Getting Ready for Y2Q

Presented by

Bruno Huttner, Director of Quantum Strategic Initiatives, ID Quantique

About this talk

CSA is a pioneer in promoting awareness about the quantum threat. The Quantum-Safe Security Working Group was created seven years ago, bringing together industry professionals and academics from different backgrounds. Today, we continue our education and awareness program by starting our Y2Q (year to quantum) countdown. Based on current estimations, we have selected a plausible date, by which a quantum computer should be able to break our cybersecurity infrastructure. We will use this date as a flag, to emphasize the imminence of the threat and the need to find and implement new solutions. In this talk, we will briefly explain the quantum computer and quantum threat, then present possible solutions. Some are based on new algorithms, known as quantum-resistant algorithms. They can be complemented with quantum solutions, which utilize the same peculiar properties of the quantum world to thwart the quantum computer threat. Together, they will be part of a new quantum-safe infrastructure, which will recover and even improve cloud security. This session was presented live at the CSA Research Summit on March 9th, 2022.
