PQSecure’s discussion on hybrid cryptography and recent progress

“As billions of dollars are being spent globally to build the world’s first large-scale quantum computer, which could induce major advances in science, technology, finance, and more, the world is also preparing for the  negatives, a complete break in the foundational security of the internet and other digital applications. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)…”

NIST Announces Round 3 Candidates, SIKE Remains

“On July 22, 2020, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) finally announced the long-awaited Round 3 finalists for their post-quantum standardization process. Of the 69 algorithms that survived initial scrutiny and made it into the start of Round 1 back in 2017, Round 2 saw this field cut to 26 candidates and now Round 3 has cut this down to 15. These 15 are further broken down into what NIST refers to as “finalists” and “alternates”, where the alternates could be standardized during a Round 4. Round 3 is expected to last approximately 12-18 months. In addition …”

PQSecure’s discussion on the NIST PQS process, candidates, hybrid schemes and more

“Post-Quantum cryptography refers to cryptographic algorithms that are secure both classically and against attacks using quantum computers, when they arrive. Governments and high-tech companies are spending large sums of money building these quantum computers with some success from companies like Google, IBM, and others. The large-scale quantum computers needed to break internet encryption are not available today, but that day is fast approaching. …”

PQSecure joins Quantum Economic Development Consortium (QED-C)

The Quantum Economic Development Consortium (QED-C), which aims to enable and grow the U.S. quantum industry and associated supply chain, has over 100 participants, including PQSecure Technologies.  QED-C brings industry together to identify high impact applications and gaps in the enabling technologies, standards, and “quantum ready” workforce needed to realize those applications.  QED-C also provides an industry voice to the government agencies that have a role in advancing quantum information science and technology. PQSecure Technologies is excited to be part of QED-C and part of the future quantum economy. Quantum computers will also be able to break the security of current internet and connected online infrastructures. Quantum-safe solutions will be required to make our connections secure now and at the age of quantum computers. Please talk to us as we have quantum-safe solutions for your applications.
