Addressing Quantum Computing Threats With SRAM PUFs

You’ve probably been hearing a lot lately about the quantum-computing threat to cryptography. If so, you probably also have a lot of questions about what this “quantum threat” is and how it will impact your cryptographic solutions. Let’s take a look at some of the most common questions about quantum computing and its impact on cryptography. What is a quantum computer? A quantum comput... » read more

How Secure Are FPGAs?

The unique hybrid software/hardware nature of FPGAs makes them tempting targets for cyberattacks, while also enabling them to rebuff attacks and change the attack surface before significant damage can be done. But it's becoming increasingly challenging to address all the potential vulnerabilities. FPGAs are often included in larger systems, each with their own unique attack vectors as well a... » read more

Side-Channel Attack Protection For Quantum Safe Cryptography

A recent Reuters Special Report discussed the race between the US and China to protect digital assets and communications from the potential threat posed by quantum computers. Cryptographically relevant quantum computers, those that are powerful enough to crack existing public key-based encryption methods, could compromise military, economic, and personal information across the globe. While the ... » read more

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

Vehicle Security: Post-Quantum Security to the CAN Network

This new technical paper titled "PUF-Based Post-Quantum CAN-FD Framework for Vehicular Security" is published by researchers at University of Tennessee. Abstract "The Controller Area Network (CAN) is a bus protocol widely used in Electronic control Units (ECUs) to communicate between various subsystems in vehicles. Insecure CAN networks can allow attackers to control information between vit... » read more
