NIST Accepts SecureRF’s WalnutDSA for Evaluation

SecureRF’s Walnut Digital Signature Algorithm (WalnutDSA) has been accepted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for evaluation as a standard for post-quantum, public-key cryptography. NIST expects to perform multiple rounds of evaluation over a period of three to five years on all of the methods submitted.

WalnutDSA is a fast, easy-to-implement, low-energy solution that provides authentication, integrity, and non-repudiation for the low-resource devices that power the Internet of Things (IoT). It typically authenticates 30× faster than ECDSA and is available for both software and hardware implementations.
