UWaterloo joins PQCA to advance collaboration in quantum

The University of Waterloo has joined the newly created Post-Quantum Cryptography Alliance (PQCA), an initiative that unites public and private technology leaders to address the cryptographic security challenges posed by quantum computing. UWaterloo’s decade-old Open Quantum Safe project will be housed at the PQCA, with PQCA contributing to the project. “The collaborative approach between academia, industry and government to develop new cryptographic algorithms publicly ensures that some of the world’s best scientific minds are vetting the security of this important new technology,” said UWaterloo Professor Dr Douglas Stebila.
