New post-quantum cryptographic algorithms which are resistant to quantum computer-based attacks will need to be implemented, but introducing new algorithms requires updates to protocols, schemes, and infrastructures that could take decades to complete. This paper introduces challenges associated with adopting and using post-quantum cryptography once new algorithms and new standards using them. NIST's post-quantum standard is necessary because it has been shown that quantum computers can easily factorise large numbers and it is now a matter of time before today's public-key cryptography standards (RSA and Elliptic Curve) are broken. These standards currently protect virtually all the world's data both at rest and in transit across the internet, as well as crypto-currencies such. In the future, when post-quantum cryptosystems have been vetted by efforts like the NIST Post-Quantum Project, VPNs that are protected by post-quantum cryptography can be rapidly deployed to protect existing applications, until the applications themselves can be updated to use the new algorithms natively. Post-quantum Crypto VPN Software . You can go directly to our project page at GitHub here. Federal Officials Looking to NIST for Post-Quantum Crypto Standards. Federal government officials involved in the development of quantum information science (QIS) agreed this week that quantum encryption standards currently being worked on by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) are needed to set some rules of the road.
In this paper, Report on Post-Quantum Cryptography, NIST's boffins note that a successful crypto-cracking quantum computer would mean that algorithms such as RSA, elliptic curve cryptography (for example, the elliptic curve digital signature algorithm and Diffie-Hellman elliptic curves), and finite field cryptography (like the digital signature algorithm) would no longer be secure The deadline for submitting to NIST's post-quantum project was yesterday, and I'd like to present our submission, Gravity-SPHINCS. Gravity-SPHINCS is the fruit of Guillaume Endignoux's master's thesis in our research team, supervised by yours truly, between February and July 2017.
