Freak Posted July 9, 2022 Share Posted July 9, 2022 Here is NIST's announcement post. They've chosen the first 4 encryption algorithms that will become part of their post-quantum cryptographic standard for encryption algorithms which are resistant to attacks by quantum computers. The algorithms, their functions, and the mathematics they're based on are as follows: General Encryption: CRYSTALS-Kyber - Lattice-based Digital Signatures: CRYSTALS-Dilithium - Lattice-based FALCON - Lattice-based SPHINCS+ - Hash functions As you can see, 3 of the 4 chosen are Lattice-based while the final one is Hash-based. There are 4 more encryption algorithms that are still under consideration, and none of them are hash or lattice based. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
