Migration to Post-Quantum Cryptography: Project Description Released
August 04, 2021

The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has posted the final project description for the Migration to Post-Quantum Cryptography project. This effort complements the NIST post-quantum cryptography (PQC) standardization activities. 

The NCCoE will solicit participation from industry to develop and demonstrate practices to ease migration from the current set of public-key cryptographic algorithms to replacement algorithms that are resistant to quantum computer-based attacks. These practices will take the form of white papers, playbooks, and demonstrable implementations for organizations. The audience for these practices is intended to include organizations that provide cryptographic standards and protocols, and enterprises that develop, acquire, implement, and service cryptographic products.
