10th ETSI/IQC Quantum Safe Cryptography Conference
May 14, 2024 – May 16, 2024
ETSI and the Institute for Quantum Computing are pleased to announce the 10th ETSI/IQC Quantum Safe Cryptography Conference, taking place in Singapore on 14-16 May 2024. The event will be hosted by the Centre for Quantum Technologies, National University of Singapore.
Join us in marking this important milestone by contributing with a talk, proposing a panel discussion or simply coming along to learn more about this rapidly evolving field and meet the key players behind these important maturing technologies.
We increasingly rely on cyber technologies, and hence are ever more vulnerable to cyber-attacks. As progress toward a cryptographically relevant quantum computer advances, these attack vectors grow and the imperative to prepare for a transition to quantum secure technologies continues to increase. In response, standardization efforts are accelerating; the initial NIST PQC standards are due in 2024, and our working groups here at ETSI are active in evaluating these and how they will fit into existing protocols, applications and public-key infrastructures. Hence solutions are starting to become commercially available, best practices are being developed and shared, and the ability to transition in a secure and cost-effective way continues to increase. This is a continually evolving and complex journey and much remains to be understood and navigated.
This event was designed for members of the business, government, and research communities with a stake in cryptographic standardization to facilitate the knowledge exchange and collaboration required to transition cyber infrastructures and business practices to make them safe in an era with quantum computers. It aims to showcase both the most recent developments from industry and government and cutting-edge potential solutions coming out of the most recent research.
- Showcase recent research, initiatives and standardization activities worldwide
- Bring together key players from industry, academia, government and standardization bodies
- Facilitate networking and relationship-building opportunities
- Encourage discussion and critical thinking around pertinent topics
- Provide actionable steps and takeaways for novices wanting to begin their quantum-safe migration
Why should one attend?
The first NIST standards for PQC will be released in 2024 and therefore there is no reason to delay your quantum-safe migration further.
This conference is a perfect opportunity to determine your next steps, learn from experts and network others going through the process. Nowhere else can you encounter the latest research in such an actionable way, with specific tracks for both executives and technical experts.
