Analysts’ Viewpoint

As cyber security crimes are on the rise during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for data protection using advanced cryptographic technologies is surging. QKD is paving the way for unconditionally secured satellite data communication using quantum technologies. However, integrating QKD systems into the existing network infrastructure is potentially challenging. Hence, multidisciplinary teams of telecommunication equipment manufacturers and critical infrastructure providers must invest in R&D to make QKD systems more compact, cost-efficient, and capable of operating in existing network infrastructure and over long distances. As such, China is seen aggressively expanding their network infrastructure for QKD, including quantum satellites that relay quantum signals.
