Post-Quantum Cryptography PQC
NIST has initiated a process to solicit, evaluate, and standardize one or more quantum-resistant public-key cryptographic algorithms.  Full details can be found in the Post-Quantum Cryptography Standardization page.  The submission deadline of November 30, 2017 has passed. Please see the Round 1 Submissions for the listing of complete and proper submissions.BackgroundIn recent years, there has been a substantial amount of research on quantum computers – machines that...
Stateful Hash-Based Signatures HBS
NIST plans to approve one or more schemes for stateful hash-based signatures (HBS) as part of the post-quantum cryptography development effort. NIST is actively considering two such schemes developed through the Internet Engineering Task Force: 1) XMSS, specified in Request for Comments (RFC) 8931 in May 2018, and 2) LMS, currently specified in draft.BackgroundHBS schemes were the topic for a session of talks during the first public workshop on post-quantum security, as well as the panel...
Threshold Cryptography TC
The Computer Security Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology is interested in promoting the security of implementations of cryptographic primitives. This security depends not only on the theoretical properties of the primitives but also on the ability to withstand attacks on their implementations. It is thus important to mitigate breakdowns that result from differences between ideal and real implementations of cryptographic algorithms.This project focuses on threshold...
