Mike Brown, CTO & Co-Founder of ISARA Corporation, dives into an explanation of ISARA and how and why they have chosen to enter the quantum-safe cryptography market. “The massive processing power that will be unlocked with the birth of quantum computers is such that much of the security encryption used today is vulnerable. Most experts […]

Quantum computers that will “likely become widely available within the next 9 years,” will threaten the encryption we rely on today. As said by Paul Lucier, VP of ISARA Corporation, “bank encryption will be rendered completely vulnerable when hackers get quantum computing.” As a result, ISARA Corporation has released a toolkit consisting of drop-in algorithm […]

ISARA Corporation today announced the availability of its ISARA Quantum Resistant (IQR) Toolkit. The toolkit helps software and hardware solution providers build robust commercial products that protect vulnerable infrastructure against the threat quantum computing already poses to widely-used security standards.

Mike Brown, CTO & Co-Founder of ISARA Corporation, clearly explains how the age of quantum computing will put today’s encryption at risk. “The assumptions that we’ve made in a lot of our Internet-based systems, that this is safe because of the fact that classical computers can’t solve it, that doesn’t hold anymore in the context […]

We study a scheme of Bai and Galbraith (CT-RSA’14), also known as TESLA. TESLA was thought to have a tight security reduction from the learning with errors problem (LWE) in the random oracle model (ROM). Moreover, a variant using chameleon hash functions was lifted to the quantum random oracle model (QROM). However, both reductions were later found to be flawed and hence it remained unresolved until now whether TESLA can be proven to be tightly secure in the (Q)ROM. In the present paper, we provide an entirely new, tight security reduction for TESLA from LWE in the QROM (and thus in the ROM). Our security reduction involves the adaptive re-programming of a quantum oracle. Furthermore, we propose parameter sets targeting 128 bits of security against both classical and quantum adversaries and compare TESLA’s performance with state-of-the-art signature schemes.
