This event is about the future of cryptography. In particular, cryptography in a post-quantum world. We have managed to welcome an expert about this topic from the UK: Dr. Pali Surdhar.
Pali has extensive experience in the hands on delivery of complex security components to global organisations in ICT and defence sectors. Currently he is at Entrust and responsible for security oversight and certification of cryptographic products that are developed by Entrust.
Pali is going to enlighten us about what we can expect in a post-quantum world. What happens with the crypto algorithms we know now and how will quantum-proof algorithms look like? How can we prepare ourselves today? Is that even possible already? There will be plenty of time for answering your questions, so join our event and you’ll be prepped!
Sidenote: this meeting will be in English using MS Teams.

The Future of Cryptography - peering at quantum through a murky crystal ball
As a vendor of cryptographic modules, we increasingly get asked to peer into a crystal ball and convey what our ‘quantum strategy’ is. The question alludes to the notion that quantum computers will one day be able to render some encryption schemes obsolete. In this talk, we take an engineer’s approach to dealing with the perceived threat. Along the way, we will explore the risk and mitigation approaches and draw on a few interesting use cases.
Your Speaker: Pali Surdhar
As Chief Security Office at Entrust I am responsible for security oversight and certification of cryptographic products that are developed by Entrust. Our products demand the highest levels of assurance, require meticulous scrutiny of their implementation and a thorough understanding of the context within which they operate.
Working in such an environment, alongside the very brightest of minds, gives me the opportunity to build and share and apply detailed technical knowledge to relevant subject areas (spanning system modelling, security architecture, applied cryptography and key management, secure development lifecycle, compliance certifications - applied across the full stack, from embedded to virtualised cloud systems).
I have also worked as subject matter expert and peer reviewer for secure standards development on security for mobile device management platforms, remote signature creation systems, random number standards and hardware security modules. I bear the scars from carrying out a number of product certifications on a wide set of products, including Common Criteria, FIPS, UK CESG CAPS, NATO and other security standards.
Being passionate about security, I have been lucky to work exclusively in the industry for over 15 years. I hold a BEng in Electronic Engineering, a MSc by Research in Device Physics and a PhD in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence.
