Course Overview

Course in a Nutshell

There is a great deal of misunderstanding about the capabilities and
limitations of quantum technologies, both theoretical and practical. There’s a
concern that quantum computing will make existing communications security
protocols obsolete. In this Quantum Communications Training course, you
will learn the basics of quantum technologies and explore their impact on
telecommunications, e.g., PKI.
