Quantum Resistance and CSfC – Now What? (Q01b)

Okay, we get it: quantum computers will break today’s public key cryptography. So, now what?

As we await the standardization of the NIST-selected post quantum cryptographic algorithms, U.S. Federal agencies, standards organizations, and industry are not standing still. There are many ongoing initiatives within industry and government that will help the CSfC community prepare and implement quantum-safe encryption solutions.

In this session, the speaker will discuss key initiatives that address the quantum threat, such as:
• NIST Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) Standardization
• NSA’s CNSA 2.0
• National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) Migration to Post Quantum Cryptography Project
• Standards Organizations
• Industry PQC Prototypes
• CSfC Symmetric Key Management
