CISA says that the guidance outlines the actions that critical infrastructure stakeholders should take now to prepare for their future migration to the post-quantum cryptographic standard that the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will publish in 2024.  

Preparing Critical Infrastructure for Post-Quantum Cryptography covers:

  • Quantum risk to digital communications
  • The quantum threat to public key cryptography
  • What is quantum computing and how is it a threat?
  • Potential impacts to National Critical Functions
  • Information for National Critical Functions that rely on industrial control systems
  • Recommended actions for leaders
