NIST posted Round 1 of comments on the Post-Quantum Cryptography Standardization process. The 69 submissions are candidate quantum-resistant cryptographic algorithms that would protect sensitive government information well into the foreseeable future. More information about post-quantum cryptography can be found here. Next, NIST will hold a workshop in April 2018 for all accepted candidate algorithms to present their submissions, while NIST and the cryptographic community start the difficult work of ensuring that these submissions meet NIST’s requirements.
