Power/Performance Bits: Oct. 19


Post-quantum crypto chip Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) designed and had fabricated an ASIC to run new encryption algorithms that can stand up to quantum computing. “Ours is the first chip for post-quantum cryptography to be based entirely on a hardware/software co-design approach,” said Georg Sigl, Professor of Security in Information Technology at TUM. “As a... » read more

Post-Quantum Cryptography


Quantum computing is increasingly seen as a threat to communications security: rapid progress towards realizing practical quantum computers has drawn attention to the long understood potential of such machines to break fundamentals of contemporary cryptographic infrastructure. While this potential is so far firmly theoretical, the cryptography community is preparing for this possibility by deve... » read more

Security Implications Of Quantum Computing


The US Government just stepped up the push for quantum computing with an award of $625 million in funding to create five quantum information research centers. Industry and academic institutions will contribute $300 million toward this effort with the remainder drawn from the $1.2 billion earmarked in the 2018 law: the National Quantum Initiative Act. The race to quantum computing is a global on... » read more
