The 2nd NESPOQ workshop 2023

The second NESPOQ workshop is located at CVUT-FIT in Prague 18. 9. 2023.

The workshop program 10:00 – 15:00:

  • Introduction and introduction of the participants.
  • Presentation of NESPOQ project activities in 2023.
  • Presentation of results and other activities.
  • Presentation of activities in project stages:
    1) Presentation of stages 3.1 and 3.2 (Crypto BUT, Jan Hajný), the system principle for hybrid key establishment, and the video demo for key exchange and encryption on a real device.
    2) Presentation 3.3 (CESNET + Optolab BUT, Josef Vojtěch and Ondřej Klíčník), the presentation of the QKD system deployed in a practical route for 10 km.
    3) Presentation of stage 3.5. (VŠB, Patrik Burdiak), the current state of the 5G network at VSB labs, a SW cipher solution for testing QKD on 5G.
  • Afternoon program: the introduction of the QKD deployment at CESNET in the Dejvice campus and the 10-km real route.
