Over the last few years, there has been an increase in news about quantum computing. Much of this news coverage has been around computing supremacy, potential threats to information security and quantum cryptography. While the field of quantum computing is still in its early stages, there are several companies who have already… Read More
In a recent marketing campaign, WhatsApp (and by extension, its parent company Meta) mocks the ubiquitous but unsecure messaging vehicle, SMS, saying anyone can read plain texts and mobile users should use some means of secure messaging. Apps like WhatsApp, Messenger, iMessage, and WeChat have each attracted over 1 billion … Read More
News of cyberattacks is routine these days in spite of the security mechanisms built into widely used electronics systems. It is not surprising that entities involved with ensuring safe and secure systems are continually working on enhancing encryption/decryptions mechanisms. Recently NIST standardized cryptography algorithms… Read More
In cybersecurity circles, the elephant in the room is a quantum computer in the hands of nefarious actors. A day is coming, soon, when well-funded organizations will be able to rent time on, or maybe even build or buy a quantum machine. Then, if data is valuable enough, people will hunt for it. Two or three months of compute time on a … Read More
Quantum Computing is the area of study focused on developing computer technology based on the principles of quantum theory. Tens of billions of public and private capitals are being invested in Quantum technologies. Countries across the world have realized that quantum technologies can be a major disruptor of existing businesses,… Read More
Quantum teleportation is a technique for transferring quantum information from a sender at one location to a receiver some distance away. While teleportation is portrayed in science fiction as a means to transfer physical objects from one location to the next, quantum teleportation only transfers quantum information. … Read More
Building a quantum internet is a key ambition for many countries around the world, such a breakthrough will give them competitive advantage in a promising disruptive technology, and opens a new world of innovations and unlimited possibilities.
Recently the US Department of Energy (DoE) published the first blueprint of its… Read More
