BSI publishes Study on Implementation Attacks on QKD Systems:
The Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik (BSI) has published a new study on implementation attacks against QKD systems. The report summarizes the current state of knowledge and points towards further works which are necessary in order to obtain assurance about the implementation security of QKD systems. In particular, more experience needs to be gained in practically executing implementation and side-channel attacks and more research needs to be conducted on the effectiveness of countermeasures. The report can serve to scientists, manufacturers and other stakeholder as a basis for further works in this area. Click here for the study.
