FAPESP and Intel announce the result of a call for proposals to select and fund academic research on hardware implementation aspects of post-quantum cryptography.

With the rapid development of quantum computing technology comes the potential for polynomial-time algorithms for solving the ostensibly hard mathematical problems underlying modern public-key cryptography (integer factorization, discrete logarithm, elliptic curve discrete logarithm).

Post-quantum cryptography explores alternative public-key algorithms that are believed to be resistant to quantum computer attacks utilizing Shor’s algorithm.
