The PQC Coalition: The Bright Present and Future of PQC Migration in the Real World (Q11c)
As of March 2023, MITRE is standing up a PQC Coalition of industry, government, and academia to address long-term cybersecurity issues in the real-world migration to quantum-resistant systems. Topics of interest for the Coalition’s work include e.g. establishing a public-reporting system for common vulnerabilities during this process (akin to CVE), addressing cross-cutting interoperability issues, and identifying — comprehensively — which hardware and software packages have sufficiently transitioned to be sufficiently quantum-resistant and therefore, trusted. This talk will report on the status of the PQC Coalition effort, six months post kick-off. This talk will highlight how interested and willing parties might join in and participate going forward.
