Integration Challenges of Quantum-Safe Cryptography into Hyper-Scale Hyper-Connected IoT Devices (Q30c)

This talk will be about integration of quantum-safe cryptographic algorithms into hyper-scale hyper-connected IoT devices that are size, weight, and power (SWaP) constrained. Quantum-safe cryptography is an uncharted territory as the fastest candidate has the largest key size and the slowest candidate offers smallest key size. This makes deployment and integration of quantum-safe algorithms into SWaP-constrained IoT devices challenging. On the other hand, these devices are supposed to be connected directly or indirectly into today’s 5G network which adds another layer of complication. We will discuss these challenges and provide details about our current efforts towards making these IoT devices being quantum-safe a reality. We will provide some experiment results on the integration of quantum-safe algorithms into IoT devices.
