NIST post-quantum algorithm candidate’s future uncertain, with second attack proposed


Researchers on Monday proposed an attack on SIKE they say “significantly reduces” the algorithm's security by solving it with torsion.

NIST chooses 4 algorithms to defend against quantum computers


The announcement is the culmination of a six-year, four-round competition to refine encryption formulas with the goal of including some in a new post-quantum cryptographic standard.

Quantum cyber legislation recognizes difficult transition lies ahead


Industry experts say the proposed Quantum Cybersecurity Preparedness Act recognizes the risk of the hack now, decrypt later threats.

SOCOM wants to prioritize stronger communications encryption


U.S. Special Operations Command wants to ensure its communications will stay secure now and in the future.

Are agencies like Energy funding quantum technology wisely?


China is sitting on the encrypted data it exfiltrates, waiting for a quantum computer capable of cracking it. Post-quantum cryptography is one way to protect time-sensitive information, while some technologists are rooting for quantum key distribution.
