The digital infrastructure of society relies on robust and reliable data encryption. Current telecommunications networks protect data exchange locally as well as globally. However, the development of quantum computers poses a risk to existing encryption technologies. How can we make our networks resilient to the quantum threat? Responding to quantum with quantum? Experimenting with new technologies and validating them within a test bench framework can prove to be a valuable innovation tool in a comprehensive approach to cyber resilience.
