Lunchseminar Post-Quantum Cryptography
This week’s Cyber-Defence Campus lunch seminar revolved around the topic of postquantum cryptography and its implementation challenges.
Jean-Charles Faugere, Co-Founder & Chief Technology Officer at CryptoNext Security presented at our seminar in Berne various use cases of post-quantum encryption algorithms, and if not properly implemented, how they can create vulnerabilities or lack the flexibility required for future scalability.
Transition of systems and applications to be quantum safe goes far beyond defining new cryptographic algorithms that can resist to quantum computer attacks. Postquantum remediation, if not implemented the right way can introduce vulnerabilities or simply miss the agility required for future scalability . A global PQ multi-layer approach encompassing crypto library, protocols & objects, development tools up to applications plugins is required. We will discuss this through technology and standards updates as well as real-life implementation feedbacks for typical use cases.
