NIST Post-Quantum Cryptography Standardization Project and SecureRF
Quantum computing is moving from theory to reality. MIT and commercial entities including IBM, Microsoft, and Google have already delivered elementary quantum computing platforms. When large-enough quantum computers are built, known algorithms will be able to weaken or break most of the public-key methods now in use. Concerns over the security threat this represents are growing. To address this, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has initiated a process to solicit, evaluate and standardize quantum-resistant, public key, cryptographic methods. In response to NIST’s call for solutions, SecureRF has submitted WalnutDSA, a group-theoretic digital signature method that is resistant to all known quantum attacks.
