AQuaSeC: Agile Quantum Safe Communications

Home>Research Community>Collaboration Opportunities>Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund>AQuaSeC: Agile Quantum Safe Communications

A number of Hub partners are involved in the AQuaSeC ISCF-funded project, led by Toshiba, which aims to: develop flexible, low cost and user-friendly prototypes for quantum-safe communication networks, combining quantum cryptography and algorithms that are resistant to attacks by a quantum computer; develop a world-leading capability in quantum communication components, such as photon sources, detectors, entropy generators and QKD modules, and establish a supply chain in the UK; establish a process for security evaluation and certification in the UK, to allow a market for quantum security products to develop; demonstrate the efficient integration of quantum-safe communications in networks and applications by working with end-users in a number of market sectors; explore the commercial opportunities that these technologies present.
