ISARA paves the way to quantum security with its hybrid certification patents dedication

One of the primary challenges of quantum computing is to bridge the gap with classical computing. This is especially true of encryption.
Quantum cryptography, which uses the principles of quantum mechanics to encode data, recently gained worldwide attention when three physicists Won the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics. Their research in quantum physics points to the future application of quantum mechanics to cryptography.
A breakthrough in quantitative research
In recent years, there has been a significant increase in research into quantum computers, which exploit the phenomena of quantum mechanics to solve mathematical problems. Difficult or intractable for traditional computers.
NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) has begun a process of requesting, evaluating, and standardizing quantum-resistant public-key cryptographic algorithms.
If and when large-scale quantum computers are built, they are expected to be able to crack many of the public-key cryptographic systems currently in use.
Greg Whitmore, Vice President of Product Development at Entrust and He said in the ISARA ad.
Mixed Certification Patents
“The goal of Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC)… is to develop encryption systems that are secure against both quantum and classical computers, and can handle existing communication protocols and networks,” according to NIST.
In order to get there, the encryption products, protocols and services that “everyday business depends on to become quantitatively secure” must be upgraded, According to ISARA.
Enabling blended certification, an important component of the ISARA Catalyst methodology Organizations are moving to today’s quantum secure security to protect connected devices — as well as complex public key infrastructures (PKIs) — without any impact on end users, according to ISARA.
These certificates support one or more encryption algorithms within a single certificate and Classic and secure public keys and signatures can support quantum, ISARA says.
The hybrid certificate is a traditional X.509 digital certificate that has additional quantum secure components encoded within it.
“When an organization begins to migrate their systems and applications to quantum secure encryption, they will not need to support two separate PKIs — one for traditional and one for quantum secure certificates — as they will already have two-in-one hybrid certificates in place. This backwards compatibility provides through The transition period to quantum,” according to ISARA.
“By making the four patents of these important digital certificates publicly available, we look forward to growing the industry and increasing the application of rapid encryption for more secure systems now and in the future.”

“Venafi has created the machine identity management market, and we have been investing continuously in innovation and open source technology for years,” said Kevin Busick, Venafi, Vice President of Strategy and Threat Intelligence at Venafi.
“Venafi sponsored Crypto4A and ISARA to advance innovations that were critical to enabling this open source technology and we are excited to see it become open to everyone. Our goal is to make it easier to prepare for a post-quantum world where today’s machine identities cannot be trusted,” says Boschek.
