Agreement in Trieste to apply cryptography quantum also to the port and logistics sector

It was signed by AdSP, SISSA, University of Trieste, Area Science Park and CNR

Today the Port System Authority of the Tyrrhenian Sea Orientale has signed together with the International School Advanced Studies (SISSA), at the University of Studies of Trieste, at the Scientific and Technological Research Area of Trieste - Area Science Park and the National Research Council an agreement whose purpose is the codification and protection of data and communications via quantum cryptography. The agreement is the first step towards the implementation of activities of information dissemination, research, technological development and testing applications whose goal is to open up as much as possible possible for the participation of other interested parties, public and private, in the R&D&I and transport sectors and international logistics, with potential repercussions also on plan of production activities.

The agreement provides, in particular, for the possibility of create ad hoc partnerships for the development and implementation of pilot projects on selected logistics chains of interest to the port system of the Eastern Adriatic.

On the occasion of the signing of the agreement, which took place in Trieste at the headquarters of the AdSP at the Lloyd's Tower, the President of the Authority of Sistema Portuale, Zeno D'Agostino, highlighted that "today the port is a totally digital system and we need data security. From Trieste pass goods, trains and sensitive information to Europe and the rest of the world. The quantum communication is the ideal tool, indeed it is the future for this type of security. Also - made known D'Agostino - there is a new role that we want to give to the port, that of a technological hub, where data management, both in terms of submarine cables that manage stocks of large quantities of information, is one of the objectives to which we stand working; the presence in Trieste of important research centers does not it does so to encourage our approach».
