US standardization authority NIST has published a list of the algorithms that participate in the Post-Quantum Competition. No fewer than 69 crypto systems enter the race – more than ever before in a crypto algorithm contest. NIST now faces the difficult task of selecting an algorithm (or several, if need be) that will be declared the new US standard – in an evaluation process lasting several years. It is expected that many state authorities, companies and standardisation bodies worldwide will join this selection. cryptovision is looking forward to an exciting contest.
