Y2Q: A journey to quantum safe cryptograpy

A note on potential largest global migration programs since Y2K

The promise of unprecedented computing power to solve current intractable problems is a very attractive proposition for quantum computers. But these quantum computers also have the potential to pose a significant threat to the security of many cryptographic systems that we currently use. Y2Q is anticipated to be one of the largest global migration programs affecting most of the information and communication systems since Y2K.

Most organizations face challenges in understanding and appreciating the complexity and enormity of this huge migration process. Read more about it in this report that compares Y2Q to Y2K, and discusses similarities and differences, enhancing awareness for this quantum threat and encouraging action.
