Details

In light of the threat that quantum computers pose to crypto-systems such as RSA and ECC (Elliptic Curve Cryptography), the once-distant need to develop and deploy quantum-resistant technologies is quickly becoming a reality.

However, the use of ECC digital signatures and other similar cryptographic algorithms means that quantum computing could pose a fatal threat to the security of existing cryptocurrencies, which deploy number theory-based public key crypto-systems extensively.

We welcome Jin Liu from the ABCMint Foundation to speak about his team's research.

The mission of the ABCMint Foundation is to successfully develop quantum-resistant blockchain technology and also look to promote and support fundamental research for quantum computing technology and post-quantum algorithms.

Doors open at 6pm
Presentations begin at 6:30pm

NOTE TO NEWCOMERS - although this a technical presentation, Jin will ensure that the concepts and issues relating to the subject are accessible to all.

If you are new to the group, or if your technical understanding is limited, these types of presentation are a great opportunity to help expand your knowledge.
