ETSI Quantum Safe Workshop 2017

This year’s ETSI/IQC Quantum Safe Workshop was held in London, UK on September 13th to 15th. A large part of the event was focussed on a series of panel discussions tackling various issues surrounding post-quantum security. These included a panel with views from the governments of different countries on their approach to quantum-safe security and views of the future, the importance of standardization of post-quantum solutions, available technologies to deal with the quantum threat, and joint global efforts to tackling the quantum threat. In addition to this a number of individual talks were given including one from Lily Chan of NIST who gave an overview of that agency’s efforts to standardize post-quantum cryptography.
