Third PQC Standardization Conference

The NIST Post-Quantum Cryptography Standardization Process has entered the third phase, in which 7 third round finalists and eight alternate candidates are being considered for standardization. NIST held the third NIST PQC Standardization Conference June 7-9, 2021 to discuss various aspects of these candidates, and to obtain valuable feedback for the final selection(s). Each submission team, of the 15 finalists and alternates, was invited to give a short update on their algorithm.

The conference was held virtually.
