Quantum computing is progressing at a fast pace and a useful quantum computer can break currently used public key cryptography systems. This has prompted the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to start a standardisation competition on Post-Quantum Cryptography. This project will work on researching the theory, properties and limitations of Post-Quantum Cryptography and implement the most promising candidates in real products offered by companies in different industries.
The project brings together members of the industry, academic research organisations and key stakeholders from the government. This results in a beneficial cooperation within the project between all the participants. In addition to the national consortium, the project partners will work with leading international partners (e.g. NIST) in their reseach endeavours
