The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is working together with the industry to pioneer new cryptography standards that will protect data from both quantum and classical threats.
In 2022, NIST selected four quantum-safe algorithms for standardization: CRYSTALS-Kyber, CRYSTALS-Dilithium, FALCON and SPHINCS+—more will follow. Initially developed by ST, Keccak algorithm plays a key role in most future quantum-safe algorithms.
Build new application standards
ST is actively contributing to new application standards that will support a mix of quantum-safe and classical algorithms.
Offer crypto-agile products
To keep up with evolving threats and cryptographic standards, ST R&D teams focus on the development of crypto-agile hardware and software products. The goal is to help developers quickly upgrade their solutions.
