Rivada Networks supports establishment of global quantum security technology standards

Rivada Networks has joined with 17 other members of the Quantum Alliance Initiative to submit the first global Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) and Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG) recommendations to the International Telecommunications Union–Telecommunication Standardization Section (ITU-T) meeting in Geneva, scheduled for January 22-30, 2019, the company said.

Quantum computing poses unique challenges to network security and cryptography. Rivada is hopeful that these recommendations will help lay the foundations for the quantum-secure wireless networks of the future.
