IBM Developing New Cloud Services and Technology to Help Keep Data Secured from Future Fault-Tolerant Quantum Computers

IBM, Cloud

Second Post-Quantum Cryptography Standardization Conference organized by the National Institute of Standards and Technology took a major step towards maintaining the highest level of security of its client’s data and privacy in the future from fault-tolerant quantum computers.

IBM is announcing that it will begin to provide, what the industry would call, quantum-safe cryptography services on the IBM public cloud in 2020 and is now offering a Quantum Risk Assessment from IBM Security to help customers assess their risk in the quantum world. Additionally, IBM cryptographers have prototyped the world’s first quantum computing safe enterprise-class tape, an important step before commercialization.

IBM is also committed to making quantum-safe algorithms available through the open-source community. As an industry, we can only become secure if new quantum-safe algorithms are tested, interoperable and easily consumable in common security standards. To this end, IBM is donating algorithms and support to a number of open-source projects such as OpenQuantumSafe.org.

These new services and technologies are building on IBM’s leading position in quantum computing and leverage decades of research in cryptography to protect data at rest and in motion.
