RESCHEDULED: Virtual Workshop on Considerations in Migrating to Post-Quantum Cryptographic Algorithms

(Updated: Friday, September 18, 2020):
This workshop was rescheduled from August 24 to Wednesday, October 7. 


Workshop Objectives

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will host a virtual workshop on Wednesday, October 7, 2020. The purpose of the workshop is to discuss the challenges and investigate the practical and implementable approaches to ease the migration from the current set of public key cryptographic algorithms to replacement algorithms that are resistant to quantum computer based attacks. This effort complements the NIST post-quantum cryptography (PQC) standardization activities (
