Waterloo researchers leading quest to protect against quantum attacks

Thursday, August 27, 2020

The University of Waterloo emerged as the Canadian institution with the largest involvement in the latest round of submissions selected by the United States National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the Post-Quantum Cryptography Standardization process.

After three years of review, four submissions involving Waterloo researchers in the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization are among the seven finalists and eight alternates, still in the running for potential standardization in the future, selected by NIST in “round 3” of the competition-like process. There were originally a total of 69 submissions received from around the world.
