Worried about security for your bitcoin in the face of quantum computing? According to computer researchers, there’s no reason to be.
Some people assume that once quantum computing comes along modern encryption technologies will be outpowered. But experts are starting to posit that hash functions and asymmetric encryption could defend not only against modern computers, but also against quantum attackers from the future.
Matthew Amy from Canada’s University of Waterloo proposes just this in a paper by the International Association of Cryptologic Research.
Amy, and researchers from Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics and the Canadian Institute for [...]
A team of researchers from the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) have found a material capable of emitting a single pulse of quantum light at room temperature, on demand.
The team’s discovery has been published in a paper called “Quantum Emission from Hexagonal Boron Nitride Monolayers” in the journal Nature Nanotechnology and can be found here.
Room-temperature quantum emitters have, until now, only been observed in a three dimensional material such as a diamond, putting a roadblock on any plans to get photons – a particle of light, rather than electrons, to process information when using such components in modern devices that contain chips. Thin, linear materials [...]
Acronis, a company specialized in new generation data protection, and ID Quantique, a company specialized in quantum-safe crypto solutions, announced a collaboration to help protect companies from future security threats related to advances in decryption techniques and the arrival of quantum computing.
The first superpower to harnesses quantum science will achieve military super-powers, Defense One reports: unbreakable communication security, and quantum supercomputers much more powerful than today’s machines. As usual, the race is between the US and China.
