Workshop on Quantum Communications and Cryptographic Protocols

March 30-31, 2017


The workshop aims at bringing together experts in the field of Quantum Communication and Security. The main goal of the workshop is to discuss the development and the implemention of fast oblivious transfer (OT) protocols, based on photonics, aiming at rates unfeasible to realize with classic cryptography. The discussion of the workshop centers on the feasibility of implementing several megahertz of OT over continuous variable optical channels. The implication of this breakthrough to the practical implementation of large scale secure multiparty computation, such as private data mining, is a novel application of quantum mechanics in cryptography.
