ISARA Catalyst™ Agile Digital Certificate Methodology enables a seamless, cost-effective and simplified migration to quantum-safe security today to protect investments in durable connected devices and the Internet of Things (IoT) and complex public key infrastructures with no impact to end-users.
These digital certificates can be successfully introduced into existing systems because they’re backward compatible and adhere to global standards.
ISARA Catalyst agile digital certificates support two cryptographic algorithms within a single certificate. You can simultaneously have a classic public key and signature and a quantum-safe public key and signature. This hybrid methodology enables support for existing and upgraded systems.
Migrating a PKI can be complex and time-consuming, and even more so if duplication is required. With ISARA Catalyst, upgrading to quantum-safe security is seamless and simplified. There is no impact to legacy components, and no need to manage duplicated certificates. Migration can be achieved using a phased-approach — perfect for large, complex PKIs.
The physically embedded roots of trust used to validate the authenticity of over-the-air updates in connected devices are not quantum-safe. Quantum-enabled adversaries will be able to spoof software updates to take over unprotected devices. Avoid logistically challenging and cost-prohibitive recalls in the future. Embed quantum-safe roots of trust today to protect your investment in durable, connected devices.
Quantum-safe digital signature schemes, such as stateful hash-based signatures, are mature and ready to be used today. ISARA Catalyst allows you to use both a classic and quantum-safe digital signature within one certificate to protect mission-critical, durable devices such as connected cars, critical infrastructure, medical devices and deployed military equipment.
