NIST Unveils Four Quantum-Resistant Algorithms

The American National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has released the first four quantum-resistant algorithms that will be incorporated into the post-quantum encryption standard. 

For the past six years, NIST has held a competition to find quantum-safe algorithms. Due to its speed and tiny encryption keys, the agency has now decided to use CRYSTALS-Kyber for general encryption, and CRYSTALS-Dilithium, FALCON, and SPHINCS+ for digital signatures. 

The company claims that the introduction of these new cryptographic standards will be crucial in assisting businesses in deciding which solutions to install in their environments to safeguard their data against post-quantum risks, which experts predict may manifest as early as 2030.
