All you need to know about the Quantum Threat and Quantum Safe Cryptography: Standards, Strategies, and Migration
Quantum computers are scaling rapidly. Soon, they will be powerful enough to solve previously unsolvable problems. But they come with a global challenge: quantum computers will be able to break some of the most widely-used cryptographic protocols used to secure our digital world for many decades. In 2016, the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) put out a call for proposals, in an effort to find the best quantumsafe schemes to become the new cryptographic standards. Organizations all over the world created and submitted schemes, 69 total. Six years later, NIST announced that it had picked four to secure the digital world for decades to come, three of which were developed at IBM Research in Zurich.
Governments and enterprises have started to form a strategies and preparations to protect critical data against quantum attacks: migration to the new quantum safe cryptography algorithms. In a report, the German government stated that for its most sensitive data, it assumes the first breaches in 2048-bit encryption are just ten years away. Many critical pieces of IT infrastructure, data, and systems have a much longer lifetime (consider the microchip in a car or the encryption schemes used in passports). Nowadays, cryptography is used everywhere, but most organizations do not have a complete view of what data they hold, where it is most vulnerable, or how it is protected. Therefore, governments and industries face a challenge to prepare their strategies on how to counter this threat timely.
In this event, you will obtain deep insights into the situation today and the future, upcoming challenges, and strategies for organizations to cope with the quantum threat; and how to get prepared practically and pragmatically with education, planning, and technology. You will have the opportunity to hear directly from the world-leading experts in the field of quantum safe cryptography and migration – theory and practice – all gathered in one event hosted at the IBM Research campus in Rüschlikon. Kindly note that the number of registrations for this event is limited.
As always: sales peoples (incl. CEO's and Founders), vendors and all peoples who just like to sell their products or services are not allowed to take part at SIGS events. Because of the limited seats, only end customers can actually register.
