Google presents algorithm that protects passkeys from quantum attacks
Google has developed a Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) algorithm against quantum computing attacks on FIDO2 encryption. It's known as a "hybrid PQC" algorithm.
The FIDO2 encryption standard is just about the most secure way to log in without a password. It uses a strong form of built-in two-fact... Read more
Google now protects TLS encryption in Chrome from quantum computers
Google recently released a hybrid key encapsulation mechanism (KEM). This should protect the sharing of symmetric encryption secrets while establishing secure TLS network connections. It should primarily be a defense mechanism against possible analysis from quantum computing environments. Google Ch... Read more

IBM says it has reached a new milestone in its research into quantum computers. Never before has the tech giant achieved higher performance in this area as now with his new IBM Q System One application. achieved a result twice as high as its predecessor.
Big Blue tracks the performance of its quantu... Read more
BlackBerry launches quantum-resistant solution against cyber attacks
BlackBerry has added a new Quantum-Resistant code signing server to its existing cryptography solutions. This makes it possible to digitally sign software using a program. As a result, it is difficult for a quantum computer to crack it.
Quantum computers work differently than current computers. A qu... Read more
New service of Rigetti Computing to bring quantum computer closer
Rigetti Computing says to be closer to its goal of making a working quantum computer. This computer has to solve problems faster for less money, or with better quality results than traditional machines.
Quantum computers process computations by means of so-called "qubits". These are many times more ... Read more
