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).
