        • QKD & PQC  - paused, no action items assigned
    • News from Quantum-Safe space
      • Article retracted after claiming to break lattice-based - written by credible source so it's worth to pay attention too - https://eprint.iacr.org/2024/555, http://www.chenyilei.net/
      • Breakthrough in Quantum Cloud Computing Ensures its Security and Privacy
        • https://www.techrepublic.com/article/quantum-cloud-computing-security-privacy/
        • "Oxford University researchers used an approach dubbed "blind quantum computing" to connect two quantum computing entities in a way that is completely secure."
        • How? They are stating that with "blind quantum computing" the user will remotely control the quantum processor of the server rather than relying on the cloud provider.
        • A client computer would need to be able to detect photons which would be connected to a quantum computing server with a fibre network and received by the client.
        • It is stated that tampering would not impact the security of the data, however, it could corrupt the result and client would not know about it.
        • Research was funded by the UK Quantum Computing and Simulation Hub (collaboration of 17 universities) which is one of four quantum tech hubs in the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme.
