Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC): New Algorithms For A New Era

Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC), also known as Quantum Safe Cryptography (QSC), refers to cryptographic algorithms designed to withstand attacks by quantum computers. Quantum computers will eventually become powerful enough to break public key-based cryptography, also known as asymmetric cryptography. Public key-based cryptography is used to protect everything from your online communications... » 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

Draft Standards For Quantum Safe Cryptography Are Here

The world of security is constantly evolving, and in the few short weeks that have passed since my last blog on What It Takes To Make An SoC Design Quantum Safe, there have been some new and exciting developments in the world of quantum safe cryptography. On August 24th, 2023, NIST published the first three draft standards for general-purpose Quantum Safe Cryptography (also known as Post-Quantu... » read more
