VERIQLOUD was found­ed in 2017 by Prof. Elham Kashe­fi (CNRS, UPMC and Uni­ver­si­ty of Edin­burgh), Prof. Joshua Nunn (Univ. of Bath), and Marc Kaplan, the cur­rent pres­i­dent of VeriQloud. The founders of the com­pa­ny have a broad exper­tise of quan­tum tech­nolo­gies, includ­ing quan­tu­mop­tics, quan­tum algo­rithms, quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­tion and quan­tum cyber­se­cu­ri­ty. VeriQloud’s devel­op­ment iscen­tred on quan­tum net­work tech­nolo­gies, cov­er­ing all aspects from pro­to­cols and appli­ca­tions to imple­men­ta­tions using opti­cal devices. Our goal is to build a com­mer­cial offer for clients that have high demands in terms of net­work secu­ri­ty, with quan­tum net­work archi­tec­ture and pro­to­cols specif­i­cal­ly designed for them.
The unique aspect of the com­pa­ny is its focus on the quan­tum soft­ware engi­neer­ing. VeriQloud believes that an appro­pri­ate use of quan­tum pro­gram­ming lan­guages can push quan­tum net­works much fur­ther than the sole task of estab­lish­ing shared secret keys through quan­tum key dis­tri­b­u­tion, even using only cur­rent­ly exist­ing tech­nolo­gies. For this pur­pose, we are imple­ment­ing quan­tum net­work pro­to­cols for var­i­ous quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nolo­gies. This includes the appli­ca­tions of known pro­to­cols to indus­tri­al prob­lems, and devel­op­ment of new net­work pro­to­cols that take advan­tage of the high secu­ri­ty of quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­tion.
