Subject: Report on Research Challenges in Post-Quantum Cryptography MIgration and Cryptographic Agility
Date: Sat, 19 Oct 2019 18:47:30 -0400
In May 2016 I shared the report of a National Academies workshop dealing with issues arising from the need to transition the internet to cryptographic algorithms that are resistant to quantum computing. This is a very large, complex undertaking. Very recently, the Computing Community Consortium issued a report of a workshop that they held earlier in 2019 that focuses on research challenges involved in the migration (as opposed to work going on under the auspices of the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) that addresses the selection of quantum resistant cryptographic algorithms themselves).

A web page summarizing the findings of the workshop and a link to the full report can be found at:

A direct link to the report is here

We'll continue to track and report on key developments related to this critical problem.
