Quantum computing and its potential applications to information security


Peter Man, MSc, CISSP, CEH




The quantum phenomenon is not just weird but can be an invaluable resource for cracking and securing data. This talk will present an overview in layman terms of quantum computing from Qbits, quantum gates, algorithms, programs including an illustration (if time permits) using Shor algorithm for breaking a toy RSA number factoring problem. This talk will also briefly cover other topics such as quantum key distribution and post quantum cryptography for secure communication.



Peter Man is CISSP/CISA/CEH certified with a Master degree (Hons) in Computer Science from the University of Wollongong, Australia. He has worked in the IT Security industry since 1997 in different capacities as a developer, QA engineer, consultant, etc in various organizations including Hydro, retail chains, and government, and is currently working for WorkSafeBC as an IT Security Architect. Peter Man has been following the development in quantum computing as a hobby.
