Information Processing in Future Quantum Networks

Description du projet

Des routines classiques et quantiques s’associent pour des réseaux quantiques sécurisés

L’informatique quantique et les protocoles de communication quantiques portent en eux la promesse d’une amélioration considérable des capacités de calcul et de la transmission sécurisée des données et des informations. En cette époque d’interconnexion sans cesse croissante et de menaces liées à la cybersécurité, jeter les bases de protocoles de communication quantique sûrs et fiables constitue un défi de plus en plus pressant. Le projet IPQNet, financé par l’UE, étudiera les protocoles permettant de traiter de manière réaliste des informations sur un réseau quantique. L’accent sera mis sur la possibilité de combiner des routines classiques et quantiques dans le cadre de protocoles plus larges pour un calcul multipartite modulaire et sécurisé.


We are now at a crucial point in building a next generation of quantum networks that will completely change the way we communicate. The discovery of quantum physics has been revolutionary in the way scientists understand the fundamental laws of nature, but we are now approaching an era where this will have an impact on society as a whole. We are already living in an interconnected world and are continuously dealing with issues of security and protection of our private data. Quantum technologies will therefore become more and more relevant due to their potential for improved security and faster computation, especially since the experimental state-of-affairs has reached the point of real communication scenarios. This research project will examine how to process information on a quantum network, from theory to experiment. This will be achieved by exploring composability and modular synthesis of quantum and classical routines as parts of larger protocols for secure multiparty computation. To succeed in this modular view, we need to (i) examine and verify the quantum resources (modules) and (ii) address the routing of information and construction of resources (connecting modules). Only after going through these steps can we return to the end-term goal of the project, which is to give novel protocols that can securely, and realistically be implemented in the near future. To this end, I will work closely with experimental groups and the industry, in order to implement the theoretical protocols and achieve a global perspective on how to process information in future quantum networks.
