It is now well established that the quantum computer threatens to destroy our cybersecurity infrastructure. The exact timing is still under debate, but a range of ten to fifteen years is generally accepted by the community. In order to protect communications and the safety of all our remote transactions and especially for all cloud applications, we need to start acting now. Fortunately, solutions do exist.

The simplest solutions are classical. They consist of replacing the current algorithms under attack with new ones, which are thought to be resistant to the quantum computer. In addition, in order to further improve security, quantum solutions should be added. In particular Quantum Random Number Generators (QRNG’s) will improve the quality of cryptographic keys, which are broadly used for cybersecurity. They are already available for many applications. Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) can also be used today to protect the confidentiality of communications. QKD backbones are currently under development in several countries. Looking a bit further down the road, quantum networks and the Quantum Internet offer the promise of a different communication infrastructure. The next ten years, dubbed the Quantum Decade , will undoubtedly change the landscape of Cloud security.
