Séminaire de Vadim Makarov (University of Waterloo)

Dr Vadim Makarov is
Head of Quantum hacking lab at the Institute for Quantum Computing, University of Waterloo, Canada

Abstract:
Developments in quantum computing threaten our today’s
mathematical cryptographic protocols. Quantum cryptography offers a
‘quantum-safe’ solution that will be able to withstand the power of the
quantum computer. I review the progress in development of quantum
cryptography systems and networks, and the challenges of implementation
security that they currently face. An example will be given of a practical
hacking attack on a quantum cryptosystem, and a countermeasure against it.
