This webinar will explore cryptographic discovery (inventory) and interoperability and performance of the Post-Quantum Cryptographic (PQC) algorithms being standardized by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as framed by the following two publications drafted with industry experts in NIST’s National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence Migration to PQC project:

  1. NIST SP 1800-38B, Migration to Post-Quantum Cryptography Quantum Readiness:  Cryptographic Discovery.  This is a preliminary draft offering (1) a functional test plan that exercises the cryptographic discovery tools to determine baseline capabilities, (2) a use case scenario to provide context and scope of the demonstration, (3) an examination of the threats addressed in the demonstration, (4) a multifaceted approach to start the discovery process that most organizations can start today, and (5) a high-level architecture based on a use case that integrates contributed discovery tools in the lab.
  2. NIST SP 1800-38C, Migration to Post-Quantum Cryptography Quantum Readiness: Testing Draft Standards for Interoperability and Performance. This is a preliminary draft offering (1) identification of compatibility issues between quantum-ready algorithms, (2) resolution of compatibility issues in a controlled, nonproduction environment, and (3) reduction of time spent by individual organizations performing similar interoperability testing for their own PQC migration efforts.
