  • Why the NSA moving away from Suite B cryptography due to quantum computers makes total sense

    TL;DR —Quantum computers could actually have been the trigger to begin the move to post-quantum cryptography.  Even though the Snowden files released in 2013 showed limited progress from the NSA on quantum computers, the last 2 years since have been a storm of real, practical results, as well as funding poured into both companies and academic research.

  • 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, […]
