Preparing for the Quantum Threat with Hybrid Cryptography

Preparing for the Quantum Threat with Hybrid Cryptography

Focus of this document is on four hybrid cryptographic schemes which provide both classical security of classical crypto and the quantum security of a quantum-safe system. This document will also provide a background on quantum security and an overview of hybrid schemes.

Preparing Enterprises for the Quantum Computing Cybersecurity Threats

Quantum computing, while expected to help make many advancements, will also break the existing asymmetric-key cryptosystems, thus endangering our security infrastructure. While it is uncertain whether such a computer will live up to the hype, the emerging cybersecurity threats it brings should be addressed now even though such a machine may not emerge for another decade or so. This document describes an overview of quantum computing, the impact on cryptography, and steps to start preparing for the quantum threat today.
