Quantum-safe Security

Introduction

The CSA Quantum Safe Security Working Group's goal is to address key generation and transmission methods that will aid the industry in understanding quantum-safe methods for protecting their data through quantum key distribution (QKD) -- a physics‐based technology to securely deliver keys-- and post-quantum cryptography (PQC) -- mathematical algorithms that are resistant to quantum computing. The goal of the working group is to support the quantum‐safe cryptography community in development and deployment of a framework to protect data whether in movement or at rest.
