Post-Quantum Cryptography at Google

Google, one of the front runners in the race for quantum computing, announced their first experiments with post-quantum cryptography. Why does it matter? If Google is starting to worry about post-quantum cryptography, maybe they had a breakthrough in large scale universal quantum computing? See the original blog post here: https://security.googleblog.com/2016/07/experimenting-with-post-quantum.html Google’s Post-quantum cryptography experiment It’s time to explore options for quantum safe algorithms beyond theoretical implementations. Google has launched “CECPQ1” - a post-quantum key exchange ...

Quantum Technology News – Issue #8

D-wave and Google have a large announcement planned for December, as well as another D-wave purchase. Could it be an announcement of definitive data on the quantum effects within the system to put an end to the critics? Additionally, the Microsoft quantum simulator is released! Watch this space for more articles and reviews of Microsoft's Language-Integrated Quantum Operations (LIQUi|>) simulator. We are working on testing the system for some use cases and ...
