NIST Post Quantum Competition and Standardization
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) plays a critical role in developing standards for use in the United States that are often adopted internationally as well. Historically, NIST played a critical role in the standardization of the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and the Data Encryption Standard (DES) that it replaced. These algorithms do not rely on the “hard” problems that underly public-key cryptography, making them quantum-resistant. However, with the need for post-quantum algorithms, NIST has taken aleading role in the selection and standardization process.
The entire cryptography community is watching, commenting, discussing, analyzing, and publishing results. It’s thrilling for mathematicians and cryptographers who work on the standardization of post quantum algorithms. This white paper is a high-level overview of post quantum competition and standardization and the impact of NIST’s decisions on your industry
What is Post
The cryptographic algorithms in use today are secure against all known attacks using modern technology. However, this will not always be true. With the development of large quantum computers, which will be available in the near future, classical asymmetric or public-key cryptography security will be broken. The impending threat to the security of classical cryptography has prompted the development of algorithms that are believed to be secure against both classical and quantum computers. These post-quantum cryptographic algorithms are an area of active development and will be rolled out to replace their quantum-vulnerable counterparts within the next few years.
This white paper gives a detailed introduction to the world of post quantum cryptography–a great start to the exciting journey ahead of us.
Quantum computing has been a futuristic technology for many years. While the theory behind quantum physics and quantum computing has been around for decades, Implementations have lagged behind. For several years, quantum computing has been“just around the corner” but has never arrived. In the last few years, this has changed, and the development of quantum computing has accelerated rapidly. Today, IBM has a 127-qubit quantum computer and plans to reach over 4,158 qubits by 2025. The emergence of quantum computing has significant implications for technology. Quantum computers work very differently from the classical ones today, making previously infeasible computations possible. While this has its benefits, it also has its downsides, especially in the areas of cryptography and cybersecurity.
