Single Core CPU Cracked Post Quantum Encryption Candidate Algorithm in Just an Hour


Using an Intel Xeon CPU-powered computer, a late-stage candidate encryption scheme that was designed to withstand future decoding by potent quantum computers has been quickly and easily hacked.

Supersingular Isogeny Key Encapsulation, also known as SIKE, is the method in issue. It advanced to the fourth phase of the Post-Quantum Cryptography standardisation process, which was started by the National Institute of Standards and Technology of the U.S. Department of Commerce. Read More…
