Preparing for Quantum Computing

Posted by on April 21, 2020 in Blog | 0 comments

Quantum computing is advancing, and while experts are not sure when there will be a quantum computer powerful enough to break the RSA and ECC cryptographic algorithms that are currently in use, many are operating under the assumption that this can happen within a 10-15 year timeframe. This is a general timeline because there is no way to know when this will occur – it could happen sooner or it could happen later. The Road to Crypto Agility The IETF is working on proposals to create new X.509 certificate formats with multiple keys (called hybrid or composite certificates) that would help with...
