The BMBF project “6G-Quantum Security (6G-QuaS)” aims to develop a hybrid quantum-classical wired industrial network. Here, the quantum information is to be stored continuously in the phase and amplitude of the light and not, as is common in current research, discretely in its polarization. This should result in significantly lower latency times and greater resilience against attacks while maintaining the same level of security. The project develops the necessary protocols as well as a demonstrator. In the project leading research groups from the fields of quantum communication and network technology are involved.
