The Pan — European Quantum Internet Hackaton is about to begin …

Tomor­row we take on the Quan­tum Inter­net simul­ta­ne­ous­ly in six nodes across Europe. On 5–6 Novem­ber 2019 hack­ers in Delft, Dublin, Gene­va, Pad­ua, Paris and Sara­je­vo col­lab­o­ra­tive­ly join forces to work on sev­er­al chal­lenges.

The Delft node will con­cen­trate on two chal­lenges. The first set is about inte­grat­ing QKD into OpenSSL to enable run­ning quan­tum encrypt­ed TLS con­nec­tions. The oth­er set is a more open-end­ed explo­ration of dis­trib­uted quan­tum pro­to­cols and appli­ca­tions.

Loca­tion for the Delft PEQIH is: TU Delft — QuTech, Lorentzweg 1, 2628 CJ Delft.
