Live Q&A panel held at the end of Day Two of the ETSI-IQC Quantum Safe Cryptography Virtual Executive Conference. TelecomTV’s Guy Daniels is joined by returning panelists on the second day of the event to discuss topics related to Quantum Safe Cryptography.

Amongst the audience questions posed to the panelists are: Have you done an inventory of your networks/applications/services that will need to be updated to quantum-safe solutions? And have you identified a strategy or timeline for getting these systems to quantum-safe? Are governments spending too much on Quantum Key Distribution and not enough on quantum safe cryptography? The strongest incentives to stop using outdated algorithms on the internet have come from browser vendors flagging old algorithms as insecure, or refusing to accept them altogether, so will it be the same this time? In addition to a standard, what are the other important items needed to get wide-scale adoption?

This session is part of the ETSI-IQC Quantum Safe Cryptography Virtual Executive Conference​, 27-28 October, 2020:

Day 1: Tuesday, 27th October

Day 2: Wednesday, 28th October
