The NIST Post-Quantum Cryptography Standardization Process has entered the next phase, in which 26 second-round candidates are being considered for standardization. NIST plans to hold a second NIST PQC Standardization Conference in August 2019 to discuss various aspects of these candidates, and to obtain valuable feedback for the selection of the finalists soon after the conference.
