Getting Ready For The Quantum Computing Era: Thoughts On Hybrid Cryptography

Once quantum computers, more specifically Cryptographically Relevant Quantum Computers (CRQCs), have become powerful and reliable enough, they will enable adversaries to break current asymmetric encryption, placing important data and assets at risk. New digital signatures and key encapsulation mechanisms (KEMs) are needed, and while considerable progress has been made in recent years to develop... » read more
