Improving Security, Privacy, and Authentication With a Quantum-Enhanced TCP/IP Protocol

Presented: July 16, 2024 12:00 pm
Presented by: Dr. Paul Wang

Secure communications need to exchange encryption keys over encrypted channels often implemented with asymmetric algorithms. Because both the session key transmission and digital signatures use algorithms like RSA (Rivest–Shamir–Adleman), they are vulnerable to future quantum computer attacks.

In this webinar, a novel quantum protocol addressing security and privacy issues in the current network environment will be introduced. Participants will learn how to add a quantum layer (layer 0) at the bottom of an open systems interconnection (OSI) model and modify layer 7 with post-quantum cryptography, dilithium-enhanced algorithms to improve the security of the current OSI model. This innovative protocol combines theoretical study with an applied approach. Topics covered in this webinar will include the following:

  • An overview of crypto algorithms and implementations
  • Issues with existing encryption technologies in the quantum age
  • Status of quantum-resistant algorithms
  • A new quantum-good security and privacy algorithm in development
  • A testbed of the next-generation quantum Internet
