Practical Preparations for the Post-Quantum World

Release Date: 10/19/2021

Working Group: Quantum-safe Security

This document discusses the cybersecurity challenges and recommended steps to reduce likely new risks due to quantum information sciences. This paper was created for awareness and education, and to communicate example steps every organization should be performing to prepare for the post-quantum world. Following its recommendations should result in increased project efficiencies, decreased cybersecurity risk, and increased, long-term, crypto-agility. Part I is a discussion of the various quantum threats which require mitigation. Part II is an actionable, step-by-step, blueprint for preparing for the post-quantum world.

Key Takeaways:
  • Part 1: Outline the quantum threats that will need to be mitigated
  • Part 2: Steps to prepare for the post-quantum world
