NITK Surathkal is a premier institution engaged in imparting quality technological education and a broad range of research, development and consultancy activities. NITK has carved a niche for itself among the best technical institutes in India and is consistently ranked among the top 10 technological institutes.


A revolution use of the Internet in our day to day life has raised many attacks on IT infrastructure. Not only computer attacks but smart phone attacks are also increasing due to the growth of business transactions. To overcome the vulnerabilities, there is a need for cutting edge Research and Development efforts in Cyber security. To solve some of the security related issues, researchers adopted the BlockChain and Quantum technology which are the emerging technologies. BlockChain is a leading software platform for digital assets. It is a data structure used to create a decentralized ledger and is composed of blocks in a serialized manner. It can be used for a variety of applications like financial transactions, smart properties, credential management, internet-of-things, supply chain management and even decentralized autonomous organizations (DAO). Quantum computers have the potential to be millions of times more powerful than today’s most powerful supercomputers. Quantum computers promise substantial speedups over conventional computers for many practical relevant applications such as quantum optimization, machine learning, cryptography, and many more. This workshop explains; How vulnerable are current designs and how can they be mitigated? What are the cryptographic issues that need to be addressed? What is the importance of Quantum Computing, Are they tolerable to the vulnerabilities, how can we migrate to the quantum computers, Practical applications. This workshop covers finding answers to the above problems and much more by leading experts covering the broad range of the area including the fundamentals of BlockChain and quantum cryptography, applications showing the benefits of the technologies, as well as further challenges to deal with.
