Post-Quantum Cryptography Algorithms
In response to requests from our National Security Systems (NSS) partners, NSA Cybersecurity shares its view on the remaining algorithms in the NIST post-quantum standardization effort, which can be found below. Sharing this analysis publicly represents one aspect of NSA’s efforts to be more transparent in the way we secure NSS. NIST helps us advance the adoption and deployment of secure post-quantum cryptography, which are vital to the defense of our nation.
NSA Cybersecurity reviewed the security analysis and performance characteristics of the proposals, and we are confident in those lattice-based schemes with strong dependence on well-studied mathematical problems and in hash-based signatures for certain niche solutions.
