With quantum computers breaking most if not all of our currently used public-key cryptography, offers a secure alternative. “Secure” as in information-theoretically secure, i.e., unbreakable.

For anybody interested in the current developments in this field, the research group I work at published an interesting article about their current work in the journal Quantum:

Hey all! I just joined the fediverse and found that it's a nice thing to start with an .

My name is Nico Alt, you might don't know me but if you do, it's most probably due to the stuff I did at and . Currently I'm not active there but instead focus on university/#physics stuff where I contribute my little part to (multi-party time-bin coding, to be more specific). Other interests are and , feel free to talk to me about them!

As part of our funding of Briar Desktop at the beginning of this year, we were interview by the Prototype Fund and talked about several different things related to the project: what is so special about Briar, why it's more secure than others, how it works as a community project, and why we don't want to become the number 1 messenger in the world.

The interview was held in German, but you may want to use machine translation to read it in your language:

Don't be scared of actually reading the paper “Scalable Networks for Simultaneous Pairwise Quantum Key Distribution via Entanglement-Based Time-Bin Coding”!

It's Open Access (CC-BY 4.0) and if you got any questions, I'm happy to answer them. In case I don't know the answer, I'll ask the right people to get your questions answered :)

Noether BTW was one of the greatest mathematical physicists in history. Her insights underpin much of modern day fundamental physics. The unifying idea behind linear & angular momentum conservation? Noether’s theorem. Scandal that she’s not more famous en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emmy_N

Thanks to @rysiek for pointing me towards infosec.exchange without knowing it. After months of following people through various different browser tabs I figured that it's a good thing to finally open an account on this fediverse thing here.
