NCCoE Announces Technology Collaborators for the Migration to Post-Quantum Cryptography Project 

NIST

Gaithersburg, MD—The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) will be joined by the following technology collaborators in the Migration to Post-Quantum Cryptography  Project: 

  • Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) 
  • Cisco Systems, Inc. 
  • Cryptosense SA 
  • Crypto4A Technologies, Inc. 
  • InfoSec Global 
  • ISARA Corporation 
  • Microsoft 
  • Samsung SDS Co., Ltd. 
  • SandboxAQ 
  • Thales DIS CPL USA, Inc. 
  • Thales Trusted Cyber Technologies 
  • VMware, Inc. 

During an initial phase, these collaborators will work with the NCCoE to demonstrate the use of automated discovery tools to identify instances of quantum-vulnerable public-key algorithm use, where they are used in dependent systems, and the function they support.   

Each of these organizations responded to a notice in the Federal Register to submit capabilities that aligned with desired solution characteristics for the project. The selected collaborators signed a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA), enabling them to take part in a consortium where they will contribute expertise and hardware or software to help create a reference design and build example standards-based solutions.
