Vision on Quantum-Safe Encryption in WIRED and Quanta magazine

Research results of CWI cryptologists Ronald Cramer and Léo Ducas on quantum-safe encryption were discussed in an article on WIRED on 19 September 2015.

Research results of CWI cryptologists Ronald Cramer and Léo Ducas on quantum-safe encryption were discussed in an article on WIRED on 19 September 2015. This article was based on an text in Quanta Magazine, published one day earlier.

The article deals with the security of encryption schemes in the presence of quantum computers, which may be built within a few decades. The text refers to work on cryptanalysis of certain lattice-based cryptography done by Ronald Cramer (CWI and Leiden University), Léo Ducas (CWI) and their collaborators Oded Regev (New York University) and Chris Peikert (University of Michigan).

A summary of this article was also featured on the Communications of ACM website.

The AMS (Americal Mathematical Society) also links to the abstract on the AMS Math in the media web pages, just like the MIT Dept. of Physics
