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:

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

@nico it's fun to see all the progress in this field! I have a lot of fun explaining quantum cryptography to our 9yo. ❤️

I worked with Gilles Brassard and Claude Crépeau 1999-2001 (in Montreal) and really enjoyed my quantum computing / cryptography days.
