NIST's highly anticipated draft standards for PQC are here - Register for your free Software Trial
PQShield and the global cryptography community have helped refine the algorithms NIST announced last year in preparation for final standards in 2024. The draft standards have now been published for public review and can be found below:
A fourth scheme, Falcon, will be published soon. These Post-Quantum Cryptography schemes were co-designed by Team PQShield and have been included, following security, implementation and performance analyses by NIST.
Building on PQShield’s partnership with leading industry innovators, the company is also announcing its Enterprise Software Access Program, which will allow eligible companies to access PQShield’s PQC Software solutions that incorporate the latest specifications released by NIST. Companies can pre-register their interest on the form provided above.
The updated software will be available in September, free to use for a period of time for non-commercial purposes and will include:
PQCryptoLib - A fully portable cryptographic library with a C/C++ interface of FIPS 140-3-ready, post-quantum (PQC) and classical cryptographic algorithms.
PQCryptoLib Micro - This is a highly-optimised version of PQCryptoLib, specifically designed for memory-constrained platforms like microcontrollers.
PQSDK - provides easy-to-use software implementations of both post-quantum and classical cryptographic primitives, including an integration of PQShield’s PQCryptoLib library with popular high-level cryptography libraries like OpenSSL and mbedTLS.
Please pre-register your interest on the form provided above and we will be in touch with you shortly.
