Crypto agility - How to determine your timeline for post-quantum preparation

There is a significant uncertainty when it comes to the impact of quantum computing on modern cryptography. Perhaps the largest concern centers on just exactly when the quantum cryptography apocalypse will occur. While there are flurries of activity surrounding both the development of stable quantum computers and the cryptography algorithms that can withstand them, many are operating on what is at best a "loose" timeline. To help you on your journey to crypto-agility, let's take a look into how to determine your timeline for post-quantum preparation.

Crypto-agile HSMs by Utimaco used in research for post-quantum cryptography

With every passing day, the need for crypto agility becomes more important. Whether you believe quantum computing is 10 years, 20 years or more away, the inevitability is that it is approaching fast. This is why many leading technology organizations have begun to research the impact of new quantum-safe algorithms on their existing products or infrastructure. This research is facilitated by the use of , Hardware Security Modules (HSMs). It is within the secure parameter of an HSM that existing and quantum-safe algorithms should be executed - but not many HSMs are capable of doing this. This why the flexibility and functionality of HSMs play an important role in in crypto agility.
