Society for Electronic Transactions and Security [SETS] is a non-profit society dedicated to research and development in the field of Cyber Security. SETS invites applications from citizens of India for filling up the position of Project Associate – III and Project Associate – II for a Research & Development project in the area of Quantum Key distribution for a project titled “: Metro Area Quantum Access Network (MAQAN)”.

Project Description

Metro Area Quantum Access Network (MAQAN) ensures secure key exchange between point-multipoint using Quantum mechanisms. In this project, SETS focus would be on developing an efficient post-processing module required for field-deployable QKD systems. The post-processing module includes interfacing with quantum components, sifting, error parameter estimation, clock synchronization, authentication, privacy amplification, error correction, error verification, along Quantum-safe Post Quantum Crypto primitives.

Location

SOCIETY FOR ELECTRONIC TRANSACTIONS AND SECURITY [SETS] CIT Campus, MGR Knowledge City, Taramani, Chennai – 600 113, India.
