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!

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

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.
