Virtual Workshop on Considerations in Migrating to Post-Quantum Cryptographic Algorithms

This workshop has been postponed, and it will be rescheduled. We will provide the new date as soon as it is finalized.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will host a virtual workshop on August 24 2020. The purpose of the workshop is to discuss the challenges and investigate the practical and implementable approaches to ease the migration from the current set of public key cryptographic algorithms to replacement algorithms that are resistant to quantum computer based attacks. This effort complements the NIST post-quantum cryptography (PQC) standardization activities (
