Math Paths to Quantum-safe Security: Hash-based Cryptography

Victoria de Quehen
Feb 24, 2020

Digital signature algorithms are a critical component of public-key infrastructure, with applications ranging from code signing to establishing secure connections. However, classical digital signature algorithms will be vulnerable to quantum-enabled attacks. Hash-based cryptography is among the oldest area of quantum-safe cryptography, with digital signature algorithms dating back to 1979, before the invention of elliptic curve cryptography.
