Agile Cryptography for Turnaround Business Models of Retail Banks

Going forward, it is imperative for existing banks to develop a strategy for sustaining their current operations and expanding in a digitized, cyber-secured full-service model.

NIST Post-Quantum Cryptography Standardization: SIKE Bites the Dust

NIST Post-Quantum Cryptography Standardization: SIKE Bites the Dust

Just a month ago, NIST announced its selection of three digital signature algorithms and one key establishment mechanism (KEM) for future use in quantum-resistant cryptography applications. Also, four algorithms for post-quantum key establishment were selected as candidates for the 4th round of evaluation, for potential standardization at a later time.

The NIST Announcement on Quantum-Resistant Cryptography Standards is Out. Act Now!

The NIST Announcement on Quantum-Resistant Cryptography Standards is Out. Act Now!

An over five-year-long process has come to a preliminary end: On July 5, 2022, NIST issued the long-awaited announcement of the winners of Round 3 of the NIST Post-Quantum Crypto (PQC) Standardization Process, that is, which quantum-resistant cryptographic algorithms NIST has selected for standardization.

Crypto-Agility: The gold at the end of the Rainbow for NIST PQC Standardization

Crypto-Agility: The gold at the end of the Rainbow for NIST PQC Standardization

Cryptography is the backbone of data security technology. In this article, Jo Lintzen, MD at Cryptomathic Inc. explains the preparations for post-quantum cryptography standards and the importance of future-proofing how we use cryptography to protect data in the advent of quantum computing and beyond.

NIST PQC Finalists Update: It’s Over For The Rainbow

NIST PQC Finalists Update: It’s Over For The Rainbow

Last month, one of the three NIST finalists for post-quantum signature schemes has received its final nail in the coffin: Ward Beullens, a PostDoc at IBM Research, published a practical key recovery attack against the Rainbow signature scheme.

Crypto-Agility in the Advent of Post Quantum Computing

Crypto-Agility in the Advent of Post Quantum Computing

There is no question that quantum computing is coming. However, organizations need to question themselves as to whether they will be vulnerable to threats it will present once it arrives.

Understanding NIST’s Process on Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) Standardization

Understanding NIST’s Process on Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) Standardization

Most current public-key cryptography (asymmetric) algorithms are vulnerable to attack from large-scale quantum computers. In its efforts to standardize post-quantum cryptography (PQC), NIST has begun the process of evaluating several PQC candidates in order to standardize one or more public-key algorithms that are quantum-resistant.

When Will Quantum Computing Arrive and How Will It Impact Cybersecurity?

When Will Quantum Computing Arrive and How Will It Impact Cybersecurity?

For years there has been persistent chatter that quantum computing is coming, and organizations should be prepared for its arrival. But what exactly is quantum computing and why should organizations be concerned about its impact on cybersecurity? This article explains what quantum computing is, when it is expected to arrive, and what is its anticipated impact on cybersecurity.
