SEQRE.net is Quantum Cryptography Research & Development Internet platform striving to support international community in researching and adopting Quantum Cryptography and Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) technology to enable theoretically unconditionally secure communication.
SEQRE platform has been deployed after organization of the SEQRE 2014 Symposium on 27-28th January 2014 as a follow-up proposition of a cooperation forum for Symposium participants that declared activity in consortium for cooperation and monitoring of Quantum Cryptography Research and Development (more details available at http://seqre.net/seqre2014). Since the launch of the platform all interested parties and organizations active in a domain of QKD and Quantum Cryptography research and commercialization may join the platform or access its resources.
SEQRE platform features open-access technical knowledge and research results database (including technological developments in terms of hardware and protocol/software, commercialization, industrial adoption and deployments).
SEQRE QKD R&D platform is administered by the Polish national Quantum Cryptography research and development consortium led by:
- CompSecur sp. z o.o., R&D Department (Wroclaw, Poland)
- Department of Quantum Technologies, Wrocław University of Technology (Poland)
- Department of Information Security, Wrocław Univeristy of Technology (Poland)
SEQRE platform administering consortium runs government funded R&D projects in domain of quantum cryptography trial prototyping and deployments (including Quantum Key Distribution QKD and Quantum Secure Direct Communication QSDC) for strategic and commercial purposes:
"Research and development towards commercial applications of quantum cryptography in non-entanglement and entanglement based systemss" under the Action 1.4 of the Operational Programme for Innovative Economy of the Polish National Cohesion Strategy (supported by the Polish Agency of Enteprise Development PARP and the National Research and Development Center of Poland NCBiR).
Purpose of SEQRE.net platform is supporting technological development of quantum cryptography and QKD by stimulating international collaboration by means of Internet.
