NIST Round 2 and Post-Quantum Cryptography – The New Digital Signature Algorithms

We have been talking about the National Institute of Standards and Technologies’ contest to find the most attractive new algorithms for quantum resistance. (Part 1) (Part 2) (Part 3) In this final part, we talk about the candidates for a new standard Digital Signature Algorithm. (DSA) The core component of a secure digital signature lies … Continue reading “NIST Round 2 and Post-Quantum Cryptography – The New Digital Signature Algorithms”

NIST Round 2 and Post-Quantum Cryptography – The New Asymmetric Algorithms (part 3)

In the first article of this series, I wrote about the NIST Post-Quantum Competition and which ciphers advanced to the second round, meaning that they passed through basic scrutiny and were advanced based on having strong fundamental design and good documentation. Round 3 will see significant narrowing again, based on the relative strength of the … Continue reading “NIST Round 2 and Post-Quantum Cryptography – The New Asymmetric Algorithms (part 3)”

NIST Round 2 and Post-Quantum Cryptography (part 1)

The National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) has announced the round 2 candidates for post-quantum cryptography. What is post quantum cryptography? Post Quantum Cryptography is encryption that can resist cracking by quantum computers. There has been a slow advance in the development of quantum computers, which are particularly good at the math that protects … Continue reading “NIST Round 2 and Post-Quantum Cryptography (part 1)”
