Why do we need #quantum-resistant #algorithms?

Secure (Jun 8 2023)Quantum computers can theoretically crack the encryption algorithms that keep us safe.

Many experts fear that quantum computers could break security algorithms, leaving us open to attack from hackers and fraudsters. There is serious work underway to design new types of algorithms that are resistant to even the most powerful quantum computer we can imagine.

If public-key encryption were broken without a replacement, digital security would be severely compromised. For example, websites use public-key encryption to maintain secure internet connections, so sending sensitive information through websites would no longer be safe. Cryptocurrencies also depend on public-key encryption to secure their underlying blockchain technology, so the data on their ledgers would no longer be trustworthy.

Utilizing the IronCAP™ Toolkits, we have developed the industry’s first quantum-safe email encryption software, IronCAP X™ that everyone can use today on their classical computers. Besides setting a precedent for developing a practical solution using IronCAP™‘s post-quantum cryptography, we can also help vendors to become the First Movers of their respective solutions for the quantum computing era.

You need to act now!

We at IronCAP™ have been trying to educate businesses and individuals that Q-day (the day the first quantum hack is publicly recognized) is around the corner and everybody needs to gear up. Nation states and governments are already at it, how about you? To learn more, visit www.ironcap.ca.

IronCAP™ is our latest innovation for the post-quantum cybersecurity. This patent-protected, post-quantum cryptographic system is based on the Goppa Code-based cryptographic technology. It has embedded our proprietary subclass of (L, G) making it not only more secured but also has faster cryptographic operations (key generation, encryption, decryption) than the traditional Goppa Code-based technology (McEliece). We are offering a live demonstration for the general public to try and experience the strength of IronCAP™ post-quantum encryption easily. To learn more, visit www.ironcap.ca.
