Introduction to Quantum
Current state of Cyber Security
Security solutions resistant to Quantum attacks
About the course
Imagine developing an artificial protein molecule that has never existed in nature, which can target and destroy cancer cells while leaving healthy cells alone. Imagine developing data protection software that the most powerful supercomputer in existence cannot breach after a million years' worth of effort, imagine being able to predict market movements fast and accurately enough to make low-risk trades that net you millions in a matter of seconds. quantum technologies are no longer a theoretical futuristic concept. If you aren't shocked by what you can achieve, you haven't understood quantum computing yet. However, like two sides of a coin, quantum technology advancements enable successful execution of many predicted theoretical “quantum attacks”. This increases the vulnerability of almost all of the cryptographic standards we use today! For example, quantum computers’ efficient solving of the factorization problem of large numbers directly breaks the Public Key Cryptosystems and its dependent Public Key Infrastructure. This situation has pushed cryptographic researchers and security specialists all around the world to develop and adopt cryptographic schemes that are resistant to quantum attacks. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has already released the first group of quantum-resistant algorithms that will lead to a standard and significantly increase the security of our digital information. In this context, it is very important to understand the possibilities of quantum computers and its related threats to the existing cyber security solutions and plan accordingly. Our subscribers can access the recorded video classes for a duration of three months after the LIVE sessions are concluded. E-certificates will be issued by Manorama Horizon on the successful completion of the course.

Ms. Mahima Mary Mathews
Hi. I am Mahima Mary Mathews, Ph.D. scholar in Cryptography and Quantum Technologies at the Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), Kottayam. I am also a core-end application programmer with industry experience as SAP Techno-Functional at Accenture. I completed my master's with a specialization in Data Security and am a University Gold medalist. I have developed a novel scheme for secure communication achieving authentication and integrity for resource-constrained delay tolerant networks and programmed Quantum computers using Qiskit on IBM, Azure Quantum and Amazon Braket environments as part of multiple projects.
