Zoom Introduces Post-Quantum End-to-End Encryption for Zoom Workplace

2024-05-22T10:43:36-07:00

Zoom Video Communications, Inc. has announced the global availability of post-quantum end-to-end encryption (E2EE) for Zoom Meetings, with plans to extend this feature to Zoom Phone and Zoom Rooms soon. This enhancement makes Zoom the first Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) provider to implement post-quantum E2EE for video conferencing. The new security measure addresses the evolving threat landscape, specifically the risk of "harvest now, decrypt later" attacks, where attackers capture encrypted data with the intention of decrypting it when quantum computing becomes more advanced. Zoom's proactive upgrade to post-quantum E2EE, using the Kyber 768 algorithm, aims to safeguard user data [...]

Pasqal and Thales Apply Quantum Computing to Satellite Planning with Neutral-Atom Quantum Processor

2024-05-17T07:27:47-07:00

Pasqal and Thales are using quantum computing in the AQUAPS project to demonstrate the capability of neutral-atom quantum computing to solve complex satellite planning problems. Over the past three years, supported by the Île-de-France region and GENCI, the teams have used Pasqal’s quantum processor to optimize planning and scheduling processes critical to Thales’ operations, including logistics, air traffic control, and resource allocation. The collaboration successfully solved a satellite planning problem using Pasqal's neutral-atom Quantum Processor Unit (QPU). The alignment between the problem's structure and the QPU’s atomic arrangement allowed for efficient optimization, highlighting the technology’s potential for large-scale, real-world applications. This [...]

Alice & Bob is Making Access to Their Boson 4 Cat Qubit Test Chip Available to Researchers through the Google Cloud Marketplace

2024-05-15T18:30:13-07:00

Die Photo of Boson 4. Credit: Alice & Bob We have previously published many articles about the cat qubit technology being developed by Alice & Bob. Their approach to combat qubit errors is different from what other companies are pursuing. In a quantum computer there are two basic types of errors that can occur, bit-flips and phase-flips. So conventional quantum error codes, like the surface code, need to be design to correct both types of errors. In the Alice & Bob architecture, the bit flips are nearly eliminated by the hardware architecture that they use so that their error codes only [...]

UK Conducts Successful Flight Trials of Un-Jammable Quantum Navigation Systems

2024-05-15T14:58:32-07:00

In a pioneering venture, the UK has conducted successful commercial flight trials of advanced quantum-based navigation systems resistant to jamming and spoofing by hostile actors. Led by quantum technology firm Infleqtion in collaboration with aerospace giants BAE Systems and QinetiQ, the trials showcased groundbreaking technologies including the Tiqker optical atomic clock and ultra-cold-atom-based quantum systems. These innovations, tested aboard QinetiQ's RJ100 Airborne Technology Demonstrator, represent a significant leap in Quantum Inertial Navigation System (Q-INS) development. Funded by the UK government with nearly £8 million ($10 million USD), this initiative aligns with the National Quantum Strategy's vision to bolster the UK's quantum-enabled [...]
