IT Security Solutions From genua Withstand Attacks With Quantum Computers
[Translate to English:] Bereits vor sechs Jahren hat genua gemeinsam mit der Technischen Universität (TU) Darmstadt begonnen, das digitale Signaturverfahren XMSS zur Marktreife zu bringen. 2017 wurde das Verfahren schließlich als erster Internet-Standard für Post-Quantum-Signaturen veröffentlicht.
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.
New QuaSiModO Research Project Launched
In the QuaSiModO (Quantum-Safe VPN Modules and Operation Modes) research project, new quantum-resistant algorithms are being investigated, tested and implemented in VPN standards and VPN implementations. genua is the project coordinator and is represented in the project by Stefan-Lukas Gazdag. In the interview below, the cryptography expert answers questions about the research content.
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.
