Registration is Now Open for the August NCCoE Learning Series Webinar: Preparing for the Migration to Post-Quantum Cryptography

Date: August 25, 2022

Time: 3:00PM - 3:45PM (ET)

Description: 

In recent years, there has been a substantial amount of research on quantum computers – machines that exploit quantum mechanical phenomena to solve mathematical problems that are difficult or intractable for conventional computers. A threat actor could take advantage of a sufficiently powerful quantum computer in the future to decrypt, read, or access sensitive information protected by many of the public-key encryption systems currently in use. This would provide opportunities to compromise the confidentiality and integrity of digital communications on the Internet and elsewhere. 

This event follows two recent announcements in July 2022:

  • NIST named four selected encryption algorithms to become part of NIST’s post-quantum cryptographic standard, expected to be finalized in about two years.  The announcement follows a six-year effort managed by NIST, which in 2016 called upon the world’s cryptographers to devise and then vet encryption methods that could resist an attack from a future cryptographically relevant quantum computer.
  • The NCCoE announced collaborators for the Migration to Post-Quantum Cryptography project and began the "build" phase of the project. 

During this 30-minute webinar, speakers will:

There will be 15 minutes of moderated Q&A at the end of the webinar.  

Speakers: 

  • Bill Newhouse, Cybersecurity Engineer, NIST, National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence
  • Dustin Moody, Mathematician, Cryptographic Technology Group, NIST
