9th ETSI/IQC Quantum Safe Cryptography workshop

The 9th ETSI/IQC Quantum Safe Cryptography workshop will return to an in-person format at ETSI Headquarters in Sophia Antipolis from 13-15 February 2023.

The event will start with an Executive Track on 13 February followed by a Technical Track on 14-15 February.

The programme committee is currently calling for papers and posters for the Technical Track. The full event programme will be published early December. 

As we increasingly rely on cyber technologies, we are ever more vulnerable to cyber-attacks. The cybersecurity tools at the centre of protecting our business functions, connected devices and information assets from cyber threats rely on cryptographic tools and standards that will be broken by emerging quantum technologies. 

Planning and preparing is critical. A new suite of tools resilient to quantum computers must be standardized and deployed in order to maintain the availability and reliability of cyber systems and protect confidentiality and integrity.

As progress toward a cryptographically relevant quantum computer advances, the imperative to prepare for a transition continues to increase. As standards start to emerge, solutions start to become commercially available, best-practices are developed and shared, the ability to transition in a secure and cost-effective way continues to increase. We are in the middle of this long and complex journey and much remains to be understood and done.

This event brings together diverse participants in the quantum-safe cybersecurity community 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.

This event is free of charge and open to those who wish to learn more about how the security of our digital systems is affected by the fast-evolving race to build a quantum computer.
