Securing Communications with Quantum Networks

Presented by SGInnovate
Partnered with Centre for Quantum Technologies, NUS

We live in an era where everyone is constantly connected via the internet. The way we work, play, socialise and perform transactions can no longer be dissociated with our smartphones. This is possible only because we could communicate securely over the virtual world, keeping our sensitive information away from prying eyes. However, quantum computers could break our current encryption scheme, completely disrupting our way of life in the current digital age. Fortunately, quantum theory also provides a means of encrypting unconditionally secure messages. In this talk, the art and science of quantum cryptography will be introduced. Our vision of connecting people securely via quantum links in the upcoming quantum internet will also be shared.
