Post Quantum Computing

Future-proofing digital trust

Certificate Authority and Post-Quantum Cryptography Synergy

In an era where technology is rapidly advancing, staying informed about emerging trends that could impact the security of your digital certificates has become essential for Certificate Authority (CA) customers. One such trend is the development of post-quantum computing (PQC), a revolutionary field with the potential to disrupt current cryptographic algorithms.

But where did it all start?

The origins of quantum computing can be traced back to the early 20th century when several groundbreaking discoveries in the field of quantum mechanics laid the foundation for this novel approach to computation. Key scientists, such as Max Planck, Albert Einstein, and Niels Bohr, contributed to the development of quantum mechanics, which would later provide the principles for quantum computing.

The Quantum Challenge

Imagine a world where the cryptographic methods that underpin secure online transactions and communications could be compromised by powerful quantum computers. This is the quantum challenge that PQC addresses. Traditional encryption methods, like RSA and ECC, may become vulnerable in the face of quantum computers, and PQC steps in to provide robust solutions.
