Post-Quantum Cryptography

Post-quantum cryptography, also known as quantum-resistant or quantum-proof cryptography, is a type of cryptographic computing architecture that employs public-key cryptography (PKC) and is distinguished by its ability to thwart quantum computing attacks. Most experts in the field believe that existing computing systems are quantum-resistant at this time; however, the possibility of quantum computing attacks designed to exploit current computing infrastructure remains a real possibility. As a result, cryptographers and computer scientists around the world continue to prioritize research and development of quantum-proof computing systems.
