NIST unveils four quantum-resistant encryption tools to protect sensitive electronic information


The U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has chosen the first group of quantum-resistant encryption tools, designed to withstand the assault of a future quantum computer, which could potentially crack the security used to protect privacy in the digital systems we rely on every day — such as online banking and email software.

This Help Net Security video covers the highlights of four encryption algorithms selected by NIST.
