In a short number of years, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will standardize a small set of public-key algorithms designed to be resilient to quantum attacks. But will they be? They are designed to resist the known quantum attacks, but can other quantum algorithmic tools be applied in novel ways to break the algorithms using the proposed parameters? Can new quantum algorithms break them? The aim of this workshop is to bring quantum algorithms experts together with experts in post-quantum cryptography to develop and explore potential avenues for quantum attacks on these schemes and/or to build greater confidence that such attacks do not exist.
This workshop is part of both the Quantum Wave in Computing program and the Lattices: Algorithms, Complexity, and Cryptography program.
All events take place in the Calvin Lab auditorium on Saturday, February 22 and Monday, February 24.
