X9’s Quantum Computing Information


Welcome to the X9 Quantum Computing information site

In 2017, X9 recognized the future importance of quantum computing to the financial industry and created a study group to investigate quantum technology.  The study group set the following goals: 1) track the development of technology required to build a stable, large scale, cryptographically relevant quantum computer; 2) identify the companies, universities and countries that have the largest and most advanced functioning quantum computers and providing available details; 3) follow research into methods to minimize or eliminate avenues of attack by quantum computers on the financial services industry; 4) determine what actions the financial services industry should be pursuing to protect against future attacks from quantum computers; and 5) periodically publish reports on all of these efforts.

The study group is still committed to these goals and has published two versions of an informative report titled: “Quantum Computing Risks to the Financial Services Industry.” The first version was released in 2019 and the second version was released on November 29, 2022.  Click on the button above or the URL below to request a free copy of either of these reports.

The study group is currently working on a new document titled: “PQC Crypto Market Readiness Needs Assessment.”  If you would like to participate in this work, please contact X9 staff (admin@x9.org) for information.
