Quantum mechanics describes nature at the level of single particles. Its effects often defy our intuition and lead to "ridiculous" consequences. Recent advances have sparked novel technologies with implications for modern cryptography. In my talk, I will focus on the first quantum-cryptograpic protocol "BB84" which allows two parties to negotiate a provably secure private key by exchanging single photons known as quantum key distribution. I will introduce the physical basics, explain the working principle in detail and end with exciting developments and today's application via satelites.
Next time we meet at SSE (Secure Systems Engineering), Mauerstr. 78-80.
The next meetup is a special Berlin Crypto meetup and not at our usual location at Mozilla Berlin.Trouble finding us?
We are an inclusive and safe meetup. As a user of the Mozilla Space in Berlin, we follow Mozilla's Community Participation Guidelines
We're a bunch of security enthusiasts. Mozilla is nice enough to give us the space, but this meetup and its leaders do not speak on behalf of Mozilla.
