ABOUT

The QUBIP project

The development of Quantum Computers is opening up exciting new frontiers, but it comes at the cost of breaking the foundations of current digital security. While the cryptography research community is working to the definition of Post-Quantum algorithms to counter this threat, the QUBIP project contributes to the transition to PQC of protocols, networks and systems streamlining the process and creating a replicable model.

Three practical transition exercises

QUBIP defines a reference and replicable transition process by maximizing the Return-of-Experience from three practical transition exercises involving tailored adoption of PQC in HW (for constrained IoT), in Cryptographic Libraries (OpenSSL and NSS), in Operating System (Fedora), in Communication Protocols (TLS and IPSec) and in Applications (Firefox Browser and Digital Identity). The three final use cases are Quantum-secure IoT-based Digital Manufacturing, Quantum-secure Internet Browsing, and Quantum-secure Software Networks Environments for Telco Operators.

QUBIP in Numbers

Partners

Eight R&D organizations with profound knowledge and expertise on PQC and network and system security and three experienced industrial end users from four different EU member states: Italy, Spain, Finland and Czech Republic

KERs

The methodological steps underpinning the project activities will allow the consortium to produce ten open-source Key Exploitable Results. Nine hardware and software reusable PQC building blocks and one replicable transition process in the form of playbook

Goal

To counter Quantum threats well in advance

MEET THE TEAM

We are a multi-disciplinary team of experts united by a single goal, to design a reference and replicable transition process to Post-Quantum Cryptography of protocols, networks and systems

RESOURCES

QUBIP believes in the open science principles.

QUBIP structure and concept reflect several open science principles, building upon them to deliver results. QUBIP makes the results of the R&D activities accessible to everyone as early and widely as possible in the process. You can access and download all deliverables and scientific publications as well as the communication material here.

    Current Realizability of Shor’s Algorithm

    Shor’s algorithm (1994) is with no doubt the oldest quantum algorithm with an unmatched improvement with respect to classical computing.

    New Problems Become Post-Quantum Solutions

    A Cryptographically Relevant Quantum Computer (CRQC) can threaten most of the traditional public-key cryptography currently in use. If and when a CRQC occurs, this may obviously turn into a major issue for society.

    Quantum Computers’ Role in Shor’s Algorithm

    In 1994, Peter Shor published a paper in which he explained how to solve the computation of discrete logarithm and the factorization of large numbers in a computationally feasible way by using a quantum computer.

    QUBIP is all about Transition to PQC

    Last week we celebrated the Kick-Off-Meeting of the QUBIP project. QUBIP addresses the transition to post-quantum cryptography (PQC) of protocols, networks, and systems to counter quantum threats well in advance.
