Quantum technologies are often only over-hyped showed as threat for cybersecurity … But they also offer some opportunities to enhance the cybersecurity landscape . As an example, you may know that a quantum computer will be able to break RSA keys but Quantum communication technologies can also provide a new way to exchange securely a cipher key. More, with Quantum networking technologies, communication eavesdropping are , by design, detectable and thus this could lead to some good opportunities to use them to enhance cybersecurity. Some even begins to build a Quantum internet ! We may also solve main security issues face by cloud computation (privacy, confidentiality etc) via the use of "Blind quantum computation" in the cloud. However few people understand & explain how such machines & technologies work. Even fewer people trying to build one. I’m one of this crazy people. In this talk, we aim to explain how this new type of much powerful digital processing works and how we build our own Quantum computer …without a Phd in quantum physic. We will describe our plan to build the Quantum computer's hardware with hacker’s style. Through our own experiments, we will discuss our failures, our success, our progress around this challenging goal ! Come to see part of the hardware we build at the moment. We use the "Trapped ion technology". We trap atoms to make powerful calculation & computing task! Be prepared to unlock your quantum brain as this new domain is really different for classical computation ;-) but it can enhance the Cybersecurity world

Our goal : Bring the knowledge that Quantum computing works, explain how they make such power calculation at hardware level, is doable at home and will provide a new way to do secure computing and communication for the best of the humanity

Proposal Agenda -Quantum computer 101 (one slide to be able to understand the basic of quantum mechanic w/o FUD)
-Why those Quantum computer are so powerful
-How to break things with quantum computers -How to improve the security level of modern network with quantum technologies (Networking, blind quantum computing for 100%privacy in the cloud, cipher key security, quantum internet & more) -How a Quantum computer based on Trapped ions technology works to do their magic super powerful calculation (at hardware level)
-How we build our own quantum computer hardware at home (in our military grade High Tech...Garage!) with hacker style & open source software (Contain full video of the buildings of our Quantum computer)

While open source is necessary for trustable hardware, it is far from sufficient. This is because “hashing” hardware – verifying its construction down to the transistor level – is typically a destructive process, so trust in hardware is a massive time-of-check/time-of-use (TOCTOU) problem. This talk helps us understand the nature of the TOCTOU problem by providing a brief overview of the supply chain security problem and various classes of hardware implants. We then shift gears to talk ...

This talk will cover everything about the Acorn Archimedes, a British computer first released in 1987 and (slightly) famous for being the genesis of the original ARM processor.

Modern smartphones offer a whole range of sensors like magnetometers, accelerometers or gyroscopes. The open source app "phyphox", developed at the RWTH Aachen University, repurposes these sensors as measuring instruments in physics education.

(en) We make Standard Cells for LibreSilicon available, which are open source and feasible. And we like to talk and demonstrate what we are doing. (de) Wir machen Standardzellen für LibreSilicon verfügbar, welche Open Source und nutzbar sind. Wir möchten darüber sprechen und vorführen, was wir tun.

Es soll grundlegend erklärt werden, nach welchen Kriterien Medizinprodukte entwickelt werden. Dazu werden die wichtigsten Regularien (Gesetze, Normen, ...) vorgestellt die von den Medizinprodukteherstellern eingehalten werden müssen. Diese regeln, was die Hersteller umsetzen müssen (und was nicht). Hier wird auch die Frage beantwortet, warum beispielsweise die Apple-Watch (oder genauer gesagt nur zwei Apps) ein Medizinprodukt sind aber die card10 nicht.

Billions of subscribers use SIM cards in their phones. Yet, outside a relatively small circle, information about SIM card technology is not widely known. This talk aims to be an in-depth technical overview.

There's a variety of places - on Earth and beyond - that pose challenging conditions to the ever-shrinking digital circuits of today. Making those tiny transistors work reliably when bombarded with charged particles in the vacuum of space, in the underground tunnels of CERN or in your local hospital's X-ray machine is not an easy feat. This talk is going to shed some light on what can be done to keep particles from messing up your ones and zeroes, how errors in digital circuits can be detected ...
