DIVQSec at World of QUANTUM – June 27-30

From June 27 to 30, 2023, the World of QUANTUM will take place for the second time, parallel to LASER World of PHOTONICS, at the Munich exhibition center. DIVQSec members will also be present here at the various pillars of the trade fair, either as exhibitors or as contributors to the diverse supporting program, e.g. as organizers of networking events or panels.

The Application Panel “Quantum Technologies – Communication” will take place on June 29 from 1 p.m. in Hall A1 (Booth A1.527) and combines an introduction to the topic of quantum communication/quantum key distribution (QKD) by DIVQSec members Dr. Bettina Heim (OHB) and Dr. Felix Wissel (Deutsche Telekom) with application-oriented contributions from research and industry. The choice of speakers reflects the DIVQSec conviction that the industrial implementation of QKD requires the coordination of actors from various fields such as classical cryptography, system security and integration, component manufacturing and network operation, but also highlights the customer perspective, post-quantum cryptography (PQC) as well as security and certification aspects.

We look forward to welcoming as many of you as possible!
