Panel Discussion: Towards Certification of Quantum Technologies (C23b)

Panel Discussion: Towards Certification of Quantum Technologies (C23b)

A hot topic in the community is the importance of crypto-agility, and how diversifying one’s security base can strengthen resilience. Whilst validation programmes like CMVP are considering PQC, movement towards QKD validation within key management systems is hesitant. In addition to complementing PQC security guarantees, quantum technologies bring plentiful opportunities. Indeed, the use of quantum entropy, manifested as QRNGs, has already been validated in CMVP. In this panel discussion, we intend to discuss the movement towards accommodating multi-faceted security profiles within standards and a testing programme to facilitate this recognition.
