5 Trends Shaping the Future of Encryption

For those that like a bit of buzzword bingo…:

[…] Quantum crypto-agile solution

Quantum computing is poised to render current cryptography techniques obsolete. In fact, there is near scientific consensus that quantum computers will be able to break widely used public-key cryptographic schemes such as RSA and Diffie-Hellman. Furthermore, the transition to new quantum resistant cryptographic algorithms will take years.

Thankfully we have a head start. Not only are researchers developing new, quantum resistant encryption methodologies, some already exist. Lattice-based, code-based, hash-based, isogeny-based, and multivariate systems are all examples of quantum-resistant PKC systems.
