After a standardization process lasting more than six years, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), a consortium of hundreds of scientists and engineers from 25 countries, today unveiled the final post-quantum cryptography (PQC) algorithms which will be the standards that will strengthen the world’s cybersecurity defenses. SandboxAQ has described the transition from quantum-vulnerable protocols (e.g. RSA) to the new standards in this Nature paper.
Jack D. Hidary, CEO of SandboxAQ, author and expert on quantum technologies, as well as other cyber experts at SandboxAQ including Carlos Aguilar, Marc Manzano, David Joseph and others who can provide commentary on SNDL and emerging quantum threats, the significance of the new NIST protocols, examples of vulnerable industries and possible outcomes, the PQC migration process and timeline, and more.
“SandboxAQ supports NIST for its crucial work over the past six years to ensure that confidential consumer, financial, healthcare and other critical data and intellectual property is protected against emerging quantum threats. With the clarity that NIST provides in this set of security protocols for standardization, enterprises can now begin the inventory process to identify where they are using RSA and other vulnerable protocols so they can switch to the new standards.” – Jack D. Hidary, CEO of SandboxAQ and author of Quantum Computing: An Applied Approach
