Post-Quantum Cryptography: Standardization and an Automotive Case StudyDue to their computing power, quantum computers may have the disruptive potential to break various currently used encryption and authentication algorithms, like RSA and ECC, in the near future. An approach that aims to replace RSA and ECC in next generation security protocols is post-quantum cryptography (PQC). In this talk, we briefly discuss the status of the efforts to develop and standardize new PQC algorithms. In addition, we present a case study, in which we implemented a quantum-safe security protocol for authenticated key establishment (AKE) on an Aurix automotive microcontroller. To show the impact of a transition to PQC algorithms, we provide a breakdown of cycle cost and communication overhead.
