Post-Quantum Cryptography

Network event

Link visible for attendees


A sufficiently powerful quantum computer will break our current public key cryptography (e.g. RSA , DSA, ECC, Diffie-Hellman) once it is developed. For this reason, NIST is currently standardizing new post-quantum cryptography: public key cryptography that is resistant to quantum attacks. Following 5 years of scrutiny, in July 2022, NIST selected key-establishment and digital signature algorithms to be standardized. In this talk, we start with the basics of cryptography and quantum computing, describe the NIST competition, introduce the mathematics behind the new forms of cryptography, and discuss why and how organizations should prepare for the quantum threat.
