The Goal is Crypto-Agility
In just a few years, quantum computers could be ready for practical use. This is a risk scenario that must be taken seriously when considering current cryptographic methods. The effective protection of digital infrastructures against the advanced computing capabilities of quantum chips is only possible if IT security keeps pace with this development.

Five Answers on cognitix Threat Defender
In May 2019, genua acquired IT security start-up cognitix, which is now an in-house department at genua in Leipzig and is further developing cognitix Threat Defender. The solution, which uniquely combines artificial intelligence, data analytics, and threat intelligence is now part of genua’s IT security portfolio. Interview with Arnold Krille, head of development for cognitix Threat Defender, about the innovative IT security solution that combines AI, data analytics, and threat intelligence.
Expert Interview: RFC 8391 – a Milestone in the Protection from Quantum Computers
Collaborating on the research project squareUP, researchers from genua and the Technical University of Darmstadt have developed a post-quantum signature scheme. This procedure is technically mature and a so-called Internet draft had been written in cooperation with other universities during the project.
