Abstract

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) of the U.S. Government announced a call for proposals for quantum-resistant public-key cryptographic algorithms on December 15, 2016. The scope of the call covers all public-key cryptographic primitives currently standardized by NIST, which are public-key encryption, key agreement, and digital signatures schemes. The submission deadline is November 30, 2017.
