Title: Assessment of Post-Quantum Cryptographic Algorithms.

Abstract

Recent research and development in exploiting quantum phenomenon have solidified the creation of large-scale quantum computers as a reality. These machines will have the ability to solve intractable problems defined on conventional computers. This has a significant impact on current cryptographic systems. A viable quantum computer will require an increase in symmetric key sizes and the replacement of asymmetric cryptographic schemes. Specifically, new constructs for public key cryptosystems must be established in order to continue to ensure the security that digital signatures and key exchange protocols provide. Understanding the post-quantum landscape is critical to applying Sandia-developed capabilities to post-quantum cyber areas. Developing a cohort of experts in this challenging and volatile space has enabled our ability to adapt to the new challenges in various customer mission areas.
