The Evolving Security of Post Quantum Cryptography (Q30c)
Cryptanalysis is evolving at a rapid rate, raising questions about how to grapple with next-gen cryptographic security. After six years, NIST recently announced the final candidates for near-term standardization of post-quantum cryptography. Subsequently, a few attacks have surfaced relevant to the algorithms that remain after round three, potentially impacting future standards. This raises questions about how to think about post-quantum security in the light of the ever-changing state of cryptanalysis, and the future of our cybersecurity infrastructure in general.
