  • Post-Quantum Cryptography at Google

    Google, one of the front runners in the race for quantum computing, announced their first experiments with post-quantum cryptography. Why does it matter? If Google is starting to worry about post-quantum cryptography, maybe they had a breakthrough in large scale universal quantum computing? See the original blog post here: https://security.googleblog.com/2016/07/experimenting-with-post-quantum.html Google’s Post-quantum cryptography experiment It’s […]

  • Why don’t post-quantum encryption standards exist yet?

    TL;DR — With increased funding, quantum computing is moving into a “Manhattan Project” era, where the timeline to a small, useable quantum computer could be drastically reduced. When the first quantum computers are ready to go in the next 5–10 years, we need to have security protocols in place. Post-quantum cryptography solutions do currently exist. We still have time, […]
