Futurex Announces Post-Quantum Hybrid Certificate Authority Solution

Futurex embeds both conventional and quantum-safe certificates in a single container – quantum-safe algorithms can be turned on as needed

BULVERDE, Texas, February 20, 2020 — Futurex, a leader in hardened, enterprise-class data security solutions, today announced a post-quantum hybrid security solution to help enterprises, IoT device manufacturers, government agencies, and others more efficiently prepare for the advent of quantum computing. Futurex is the first company to deliver a post-quantum hybrid certificate authority offering that integrates certificate lifecycle management within a FIPS 140-2 Level 3-validated hardware security module (HSM).

In contrast to alternatives that require the use of separate certificates for conventional or quantum-safe algorithms, Futurex’s Key Management Enterprise Server (KMES) Series 3 embeds both conventional and quantum-safe algorithms within a single container. Under this hybrid approach, organizations can supply quantum-safe certificates to their devices that can lay dormant until needed. Until then, they can use conventional algorithms and continue operating without impact to their existing ecosystem. The hybrid solution incorporates quantum-safe cryptography and standardized X.509 digital certificate technology from ISARA Corporation, the world’s leading provider of quantum-safe and crypto-agile security.
