The first published NIST Post Quantum Cryptography Standards are algorithms created by IBM

The goal of post-quantum cryptography (PQC), a subfield of cryptography, is to develop cryptographic algorithms that can fend off attacks from both classical and quantum computer

These strategies secure sensitive data in a post-quantum environment using mathematical riddles quantum computers may difficult to solve

NIST, part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, announced that the first three Post Quantum Cryptography standards use two IBM algorithms

ML-KEM (formerly CRYSTALS-Kyber) and ML-DSA (formerly CRYSTALS-Dilithium) were developed by IBM researchers and other industry and academic partners

Quantum computers will be powerful enough to crack most of the world's data and infrastructure encryption

IBM wants one billion quantum operations by 2033. IBM has given professionals in materials development, healthcare and life sciences, finance, logistics, and other disciplines utility-scale systems

The world's best cryptography experts at IBM have been working together for decades and are still pushing data security techniques
