Post Quantum Cryptography

Toshiba Europe Ltd are at the forefront of innovating novel cryptographic systems that are resistant to future advances in computing and mathematics. We invite applications for an R&D post in the Quantum Technology Division based in Cambridge UK. The successful candidate will lead work on implementing quantum-safe cryptographic protocols in next generation secure communication products. This is an opportunity to join a dynamic and world leading team, supported by one of the best known companies in digital electronics and services.

Responsibilities:

  • Evaluating, selecting and implementing post quantum and conventional cryptographic protocols in secure communication systems
  • Integrating algorithmic and physics-based approaches to quantum safe cryptography
  • Analysing system level security from a variety of threats
  • Creating novel inventions, technology and solutions
  • Writing technical manuscripts and industry white papers; presenting conference talks
  • Collaborating with the global team delivering future quantum technology products

  • Mandatory requirements:

  • Software engineering skills in Python, C/C++, Linux, Git
  • BSc/MSc/PhD in Computer Science, Cyber Security, Engineering, Mathematics, or a related discipline
  • Detailed knowledge of conventional or post-quantum cryptography, cryptanalysis and/or secure system design
  • Experience in designing, implementing, and/or optimising core cryptographic libraries
  • Proven track record of problem solving and successfully driving projects
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal

  • Background information:

    Keeping personal data safe and secure is one of the greatest challenges posed by the rapid development of today’s information technology. To meet this challenge, Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) has emerged as a revolutionary technology that allows the distribution of digital keys needed for data protection with security guaranteed by the laws of quantum physics. Unlike existing technologies based on public key cryptography, QKD is future proof and is not vulnerable to technological advances in mathematics, engineering, or computing or even the realisation of a quantum computer.

    Toshiba Europe Limited has pioneered the development of high speed QKD systems over the past decade, holding the record for both the highest secure key rate and longest distance on fibre. Toshiba quantum cryptography systems are deployed in secure fibre networks in the UK, mainland Europe, US and Japan.
