QC, in the distant future, will compromise today’s cryptographic key exchange protocols. Quantum safe cryptography is emerging, implemented in software, and should be a medium-term strategic initiative for organizations where data must be protected over decades. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has decided that it is prudent to begin developing standards for postquantum cryptography. NIST is hosting an open contest for selecting recommended Post- Quantum Encryption Standardization algorithms and is expected to make a recommendation in 2021.

The National Security Agency (NSA) has issued an order that U.S. national security employees and vendors must, “in the not-too-distant future,” begin overhauling their encryption to guard against the threat posed by quantum computers. Because national security information must be protected for decades, the agency says new encryption needs to be in place before these machines arrive. NIST has begun looking for replacement algorithms for RSA and elliptic-curve cryptography and has begun issuing new guidance for key and hash lengths. QC will cause a re-evaluation of the security products that address encryption and hashing.
