Blockchains in the Quantum Era
Release Date: 02/05/2021
Working Group: Quantum-safe Security
Initiatives are therefore underway to augment today’s DLT/blockchain infrastructures with cryptographic algorithms that are highly resistant to quantum computer attack. These post-quantum algorithms are based on computational problems that are known to be very difficult for quantum computers to solve by using either Shor’s algorithm or Grover’s algorithm. This paper provides an introduction to DLT/blockchain technology, some of its representative applications, and an overview of the leading post-quantum algorithm candidates that are actively being pursued.
