NIST selects algorithms to form a post-quantum cryptography standard

The race to protect sensitive electronic information against the threat of quantum computers has entered the home stretch. Post-quantum cryptography standard After spending more than three years examining new approaches to encryption and data protection that could defeat an assault from a quantum computer, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has winnowed the 69 submissions it initially received down to a final group of 15.
