Bundesdruckerei: Agile is the new black – Why Preparing for Postquantum Crypto also Matters to You!

Quantum computers pose a major threat to classical cryptography; post-quantum cryptography is designed to provide a remedy in the form of new mechanisms and protocols. These mechanisms are currently being standardised internationally by NIST. But how can changing to these new mechanisms be successful? This will require the underlying systems to have agility with regard to the cryptographic mechanisms used.

 

The presentation shows the main challenges in this environment and makes suggestions for the further development of existing systems.
