First-Ever Demonstration of Quantum Cryptography to Improve Security of the Electric Grid

March 19, 2013 - 4:21pm


A Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) team has successfully completed the first-ever demonstration of securing control data for electric grids using quantum cryptography. The demonstration was conducted in the test bed that is part of the OE-funded Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power Grid (TCIPG) project at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. For more information about the demonstration, read the complete press release on the LANL website.
