Given the accelerated advances in quantum computing, existing cryptosystems could be disrupted by large-scale quantum computers, making them insecure within years, and the longer migration to post-quantum cryptographic security standards is delayed, and more data is at risk.
In addition, the global market for quantum security is growing according to the US NSA quantum-resistant cryptography standardization progress and timeline, and it is expected to proliferate from 2024 onwards.
Information security technology in the quantum computer era can be primarily divided into ‘security technology using quantum mechanics’ and ‘threat analysis and response by a quantum computer.’
SoftForum has organized products and solutions focusing on quantum-resistant public key cryptography that is safe even in large-scale quantum computers.
Softforum’s ‘IQNUSCrypto’ product is such a post-quantum-based cryptographic library.
The IQNUSCrypto cryptographic module provides functions such as a post-quantum-based symmetric key, public key, digital signature, key agreement, hash function, MAC, and random number generator.
The encryption function (API) corresponding to IQNUSCrypto’s encryption service can be called and used through an application.
The IQNUSCrypto cryptographic module supports the quantum-resistant key exchange cryptographic algorithm Kyber512/1024 and quantum-resistant signature algorithms Dilithium-2/3/5, Falcon-512/1024, and SPHINCS.
Each API derives a common cryptographic key between two participants using key pair generation, key verification, and key establishment algorithm.
