The race is on to quantum proof encryption

The race is on to quantum proof encryption

October 23, 2023 | Washington Technology

While a standard isn’t in place yet, now is the time to understand your risks and put a focus on agility.

Okay, we get it: Quantum computers will break today’s public key cryptography. So, now what?

As we await the standardization of the NIST-selected post-quantum cryptographic algorithms, U.S. federal agencies, standards organizations, and industry are not standing still. There are many ongoing initiatives within industry and government that will help the community of federal agencies begin to prepare and implement quantum-safe encryption solutions.
