About this event

Secret messaging has a long history: from ancient Greeks using the scytale for encryption and author identification, through Caesar substitution codes to enigma and Lorenz codes and internet protocols such as https. These all rely on complexity and difficulty rather than proven security, and we have struggled for generations to create the perfect code.Quantum physics has the potential to crack industry encryption standards through the development of quantum computers. Quantum physics can also be used to generate secure one-time pads and provable security.
