RBC-Toronto Quantum Key Distribution Network Development

The interns will develop a quantum communication network built on RBC’s optical fiber infrastructure and perform secure commercial transactions using quantum-generated secure keys in the integrated classical communication network. The quantum communication network will be based on the measurement-device-independent quantum key distribution technology, which is developed by Prof. Hoi-Kwong Lo’s and Prof. Li Qian’s groups at the University of Toronto. It will be an important milestone towards cybersecurity in the financial sector in Canada.
