Cryptographic tools are central to our defense against cyberattacks. However, our information assets could soon be under serious threat from quantum computers capable of breaking most current cryptographic algorithms. To keep ahead of the hackers, many academic institutions around the world are actively researching quantum-safe cryptography, as this solution renders information secure even in a post-quantum world.
