cablesBattelle and ID Quantique have formed an industry alliance group in a move to combat potential security threats posed by adversarial quantum computers.

The Quantum-Safe Security Working Group will work to educate, adopt and apply quantum key distribution and post-quantum cryptography to help government agencies and enterprises protect their critical infrastructures, Battelle said Wednesday.

“Forming the QSS working group will allow us to better understand how these technologies can be utilized within the networking community,” said Don Hayford, senior research leader of Battelle’s QKD program.

QuantumCTek has joined the group and MagiQ and SK Telecom plan to join the group as well, Battelle said.

The working group will build upon the Cloud Security Alliance platform and work to offer thought leadership on quantum“safe encryption and key management, as well as advise policy makers, analysts, consultants and risk officers.

The team will also work to connect mathematicians and physicists as well as establish standards and certification procedures for quantum“safe technologies.
