Dr. Randy Kuang

Co-Founder and Chief Scientist Quantropi Inc., Ottawa, Canada

Biography: Randy holds a doctorate in quantum physics. His research findings have been published in top international journals and named “Kuang’s semi-classical formalism” by NASA in 2012. With a career spanning IT, including with Nortel as senior network researcher & developer, he co-founded inBay Technologies in 2009, serving as CTO of the cybersecurity platform and co-founded Quantropi Inc.in 2018, serving as Chief Scientist. As the first recipient of a patent for two-level authentication (2011), Randy is a prolific inventor, with 30+ U.S. patents in broad technology fields, such as WiMAX, optical networks, multi-factor identity authentication, quantum cryptography, and post-quantum cryptography.
As the founding root of Quantropi, Randy proposed the universal quantum safe cryptography using Quantum Permutation Pad or QPP applied to both classical computing and quantum computing systems. The typical classical implementation has been achieved digital Quantum Key distribution over internet benchmarked by Deutsche Telekom. By randomizing and derandomizing the reference phase space of coherent communications, Randy invented coherent-based CTF-QKD and further extends it for quantum secure QXD for infrastructure. He recently invented new quantum safe public key cryptographic algorithms for key exchange and digital signature.


Prof. Michel Barbeau

Carleton University, Canada

Biography: Michel Barbeau is a professor of Computer Science. He got a Bachelor's (Universite de Sherbrooke, Canada ’85), a master’s and a Ph.D. in Computer Science (Universite de Montreal, Canada ’87 & ’91. From ’91 to ’99, he was a professor at Universite de Sherbrooke. During the ’98-’99 academic year, he was a visiting researcher at the University of Aizu, Japan. Since 2000, he has worked at Carleton University, School of Computer Science, Canada. His main topic of expertise is computer networks: architecture and protocols. Specific research interests include underwater communications and networks, flying drone networks, quantum networks and network control systems. Michel Barbeau is the director of the School of Computer Science at Carleton University.
