Quantum Threats: The Next Undefended Frontier of Cybersecurity : Quantum-Safe

Cybersecurity threats are evolving more quickly than most organizations can pivot to defend against them. The 2016 IDC report states that “worldwide spending on cybersecurity products and services [is expected] to eclipse $1 trillion for the five-year period from 2017 to 2021” but we still may not be combatting emerging threats in the right ways.

While we’re battling against growing threats from conventional computers, quantum computers are a growing shadow on the threat landscape, and people are already starting to think about how to get ready. Quantum safe options are becoming available, and bring with them new ways of thinking about how to integrate security solutions based on fundamentally different problems. What happens to TLS? What happens to VPN? What happens to PKI? Is your business ready? What potential threats should you be evaluating in your security strategy for 2017?

In this talk, we’ll cover the 360-degree view of becoming quantum resistant. What is a quantum computer? Why will it cause problems for your security systems? How do you use quantum safe security?! How does entering the quantum age impact common tools like TLS, VPN, and PKI, and what are the challenges they’ll face? And most importantly, when do you need to worry?

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 […]
