Post Quantum Security track with talks from Bas Westerban and Tirumaleswar Reddy.
Dawn of the Post Quantum Internet
We are at a pivotal moment in cybersecurity. Browsers are rolling out post-quantum encryption by default to counter the store-now-decrypt-later threat. What once was the subject of futuristic tech demos, will soon become the baseline expectation for security. Encryption is only half the story. Post-quantum certificates are much more challenging to deploy. In this talk, we will take measure of the current state, and the challenges that lay ahead for the public Web and its PKI.
PQC for Engineers
I will talk about the “Post-Quantum Cryptography for Engineers” draftthat is adopted in the PQUIP WG. This document explains why engineers need to be aware of and understand post-quantum cryptography. It emphasizes the potential impact of Cryptographically Relevant Quantum Computers on current cryptographic systems and the need to transition to post-quantum algorithms to ensure long-term security.
