Webinar to LORCA cohort 3: Post quantum Cryptography for IoT in A Quantum World: Are We Ready?

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk

Description

The impending realization of scalable quantum computers has led to active research in Post Quantum Cryptography (PQC). The challenge is harder for embedded IoT (edge) devices, due to their pervasive diffusion in today’s world as well as their stricter resources (tight area and energy budgets). Amongst various classes of quantum-resistant cryptography schemes, Latticebased Cryptography (LBC) is emerging as one of the most viable, almost half of the ‘survivors’ of second round of the NIST’s PQC competition are lattice-based in construction. This talk gives an introduction about the post quantum cryptographic schemes and surveys the practicality of deployment of these schemes in today's world. In this context, the state-of-the-art LBC implementations on the constrained devices is compared. Some research gaps, potential threats and opportunities are discussed to conclude.
