#SingleCore #Breaks #PostQuantum #Encryption #Candidate #Algorithm #Hour

Researchers with the Computer Security and Industrial Cryptography group (CSIS) at KU Leuven have managed to break (opens in new tab) one of the late-stage candidate algorithms for post-quantum encryption. The algorithm, SIKE (short for Supersingular Isogeny Key Encapsulation (opens in new tab)), made it through most stages of the US Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) competition that aimed to define standardized, post-quantum algorithms (opens in new tab) against the threat posed by quantum computers – which will render current encryption schemes obsolete.

The researchers approached the problem from a purely mathematical standpoint, attacking the core of the algorithm’s design instead of any potential code vulnerabilities.
