The advent of practical quantum computing will break all commonly used public key cryptographic algorithms. In response, NIST is researching cryptographic algorithms for public key-based key agreement and digital signatures that are not susceptible to cryptanalysis by quantum algorithms. NIST is holding this workshop to engage academic, industry, and government stakeholders. This workshop will be co-located with the 2015 International Conference on Practice and Theory of Public-Key Cryptography, which will be held March 30 - April 1, 2015. NIST seeks to discuss issues related to post-quantum cryptography and its potential future standardization.
Start Date: Thursday, April 2, 2015
End Date: Friday, April 3, 2015
Audience: Industry, Government, Academia
All attendees must be pre-registered to gain entry to the NIST campus. Photo identification must be presented at the main gate to be admitted to the conference. International attendees are required to present a passport. Attendees must wear their conference badge at all times while on the campus.
Registration will close March 26, 2015 at 5:00 PM EST. There is no on-site registration for meetings held at NIST.
