NIST Post-quantum Cryptography Standards Announced! WiSECURE HSM already Featuring the Deployment of Post-quantum Cryptography

CRYSTALS-Kyber, SPHINCS+ and two others officially become NIST post-quantum cryptography standards

With the rapid development of quantum computers, the complete replacement of public key cryptosystems has become a must. The US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) began to select cryptographic algorithms to defend against quantum computer attacks in 2016, and conducted three rounds of rigorous evaluations until 2022. The results of the third round were just released. Four algorithms, CRYSTALS-Kyber, CRYSTALS-Dilithium, FALCON, and SPHINCS+ will become the post-quantum cryptography standards.


Leading commercial HSM platform supporting post-quantum cryptography standards

Asia's leading hardware security module (HSM) brand, WiSECURE Technologies, is dedicated to the sustainable protection of precious digital assets. It has been investing in the implementation of post-quantum cryptographic algorithms several years ago. . Before NIST announced the results of the third round, the digital signature algorithm SPHINCS+ had been successfully implemented on the self-designed commercial hardware security module platform kvHSM. On the security chip platform that provides cryptographic services in a wide range of HSM form factors, WiSECURE has also successfully implemented post-quantum cryptographic standard algorithms CRYSTALS-Kyber and CRYSTALS-Dilithium.


Metaverse needs it! Next-generation HSM of crypto agility

WiSECURE kvHSM provides banking-grade security and rigorous key management. It also serves as a high-speed encryption engine in the cloud. In the future, it will become an important cloud infrastructure for Metaverse to protect a large amount of data in Metaverse applications. Compared with traditional HSMs, kvHSM has crypto agility enabling speedy deployment of new algorithms. kvHSM supports RSA, ECC, AES, 3DES and other algorithms, CRYSTALS-Kyber, Classic McEliece and others of Key Encapsulation Mechanism (KEM) in addition to SPHINCS+ for post-quantum algorithms. Customers can freely mix and match according to their needs.


WiSECURE helps enterprises connect to the future

In the future, enterprises can not only deploy post-quantum cryptography in the cloud through kvHSM but also choose multiple form factors of HSMs such as chip platforms, USB, and MicroSD to provide secure cryptographic services on endpoint devices. The chip platform is currently under Common Criteria (CC) EAL 4+ certification inspection. The development quality and product architecture have matured.  WiSECURE masters the hardware-based  implementation of post-quantum cryptographic algorithms, dedicated to commercial platforms that are to acquire the international certification of FIPS/CC. With highly flexible and reliable quality, it enables customers to react to rapidly changing market demands and information security threats.
