As the processing power of quantum computing continues to surge, it brings profound implications for IT applications and network services, making them significantly more vulnerable. Transitioning to quantum-safe networks, however, is no small feat, entailing intricate and time-intensive processes. Quantum key distribution (QKD) is a mechanism that leverages the intricacies of quantum physics to offer unprecedented communication security. It naturally aligns with optical networks, built to transmit optical signals, but integrating the two presents both opportunities and challenges. 

In this session, Helmut Griesser will explore the transformative potential of QKD for data transmission across a multitude of sectors and the path towards integrating it with existing optical networks.
