After nearly a year of evaluation, the KpqC team is pleased to announce the algorithms that will advance to the KpqC Competition Round2.
The following are eight Round2 candidates:

 A. Digital Signature
    - AIMer
    - HAETAE
    - MQ-Sign
    - NCC-Sign

 B. PKE/KEM
    - NTRU+
    - PALOMA
    - REDOG
    - SMAUG+TiGER (merged)


We would like to thank all the Round1 submission teams for their efforts in this competition. They did have an impact on the maturation of the PQC fields in South Korea during Round1. 

We also want to thank the public reviewers for their interests in and comments on the KpqC algorithms. Better outcomes were achieved as a result of public scrutiny and analysis.
 
Lastly, we would like to thank all the people who assisted us and gave constructive comments to enhance the KpqC Round1.

I wonder why NTRU+ was selected to PKE/KEM which was proposed to Digital Signature. This is very weird. 
Expect reasonable justification.

After announcement, I used the benchmark data from Round 1 to analyze Round 2 algorithms. 

Since the benchmark is done with reference codes, the analysis is not 100% correct but it can show comparison results, roughly and briefly.

This comparison may show round 2 algorithm's strengh and weakness (in terms of implementation) and I hope all teams improve the round 2 submission by referring the brief benchmark and ranking result.

Please refer the attached file.

Thank you.
