This research line is double-edged. One edge, known as post-quantum cryptography, is the development of cryptography that is difficult to break for attackers armed with large quantum computers. The goals are to improve existing schemes for this, to develop new efficient quantum-safe protocols and to analyse attacks that can be run on large quantum computers. The other edge, known as quantum cryptography, is the design and investigation of protocols that solve cryptographic problems that involve quantum data and quantum communication.
“It will take at least ten years until quantum computers will be powerful enough to break current internet encryption. However, adversaries can store encrypted traffic and decrypt it later. Therefore, we need to act now to keep data secure in the future.”
