Can you provide your opinion on what algorithms are post-quantum safe and why?

I believe the very essence, of quantum- cryptography has much to be learned and that is a good thing for us all. Many of our industry partners today, are all actively working towards the same common goal of designing quantum safe algorithms that, are secure and — that look to address the individual needs of cryptography as we have come to know it today.

With that being said, I am confident of the research, that is currently been conducted, here within the united kingdom and with our partners overseas, to ensure we have, quantum algorithms. I feel it would be totally unfair for me to comment on this subject at present as it is dependant of many different variables, and individual requirements.

Can you give your advise on the use of obsolete encryption protocols?

Any encryption protools, that are rendered redundant, by official bodies, should be phased out, as soon as it is feasible to do so.

What are the risk’s of not phasing out obsolete encryption protocols?

If you, are tasked…
