Time: from 12:00 till 12:30 (UTC), from 15:00 till 15:30 (EEST)
Speakers: Paul Hoffman, Distinguished Technologist, ICANN
Platform: Zoom

There has recently been more discussion of how quantum computers will affect the cryptography we use on the Internet every day for privacy and authentication. This talk will give a very high-level description of how quantum computers will affect Internet security, when we might expect them to have an effect, and what the technical community is doing to prepare for them. It will focus on two areas of Internet security, TLS and DNSSEC.
