In an animated story featuring NIST’s Matthew Scholl, this video emphasizes how NIST is working with the brightest minds in government, academia, and industry from around the world to develop a new set of encryption standards that will work with our current classical computers—while being resistant to the quantum machines of the future. Quantum computers will be incredibly powerful and will have the potential to provide tremendous societal benefits; however, there are concerns related to how quantum computers could be used by our adversaries, competitors, or criminals. This video explores these scenarios and explains how we are staying ahead of this potential cybersecurity threat.
