Exploring Quantum Technology for Networking

Speaker: Melchior Aelmans


In this presentation I will give a very brief introduction on how quantum technology can be made applicable to network and we will review how already available and emerging quantum technology can help improve well known security mechanisms and protocols. Also we will explore how close (or far away) a quantum internet is and if it will even be fully quantum.
