Why don’t post-quantum encryption standards exist yet?

With increased funding, quantum computing is moving into a “Manhattan Project” era, where the timeline to a small, useable quantum computer could be drastically reduced. When the first quantum computers are ready to go in the next 5–10 years, we need to have security protocols in place. Post-quantum cryptography solutions do currently exist. We still have time, but we need to take the threat seriously. Establishing global post-quantum security standards Small, useable quantum computers ...

The Quantum Network Hacker Lab

TL;DR — Quantum computers are going to render a lot of current encryption techniques obsolete. Though quantum systems are inherently more secure, quantum networks and quantum key distribution suffer from some of the same vulnerabilities that classical networks do. How do we protect the quantum network? The first system has an opportunity to establish itself as a platform for quantum innovation. However, there’s also a looming question: how do we protect the quantum ...
