Lily Chen, Mathematician, NIST. NIST announced “Call for Proposals” in Federal Register Notice in December 20, 2016, which marks the formal start of NIST Post-Quantum Cryptography (a.k.a. Quantum-Safe Cryptography) Standardization Procedure. This presentation will introduce the scope, procedure, and timeline of NIST post-quantum standards and discuss the possible impact to existing applications. We will also cover some tentative strategies and approaches in making a smooth transition to post-quantum cryptography.
