Quantum Computer Cybersecurity

Securing quantum computers and quantum computation.

Research groups at Yale study how to protect quantum computers and quantum computer hardware from malicious attacks. They are most interested in demonstrating novel types of threats, such as quantum computer viruses or new ways to reverse-engineer the quantum computer architectures, and then proposing defenses to secure the quantum computers against the uncovered security threats before malicious users try to attack quantum computers.
