Dustin Moody (NIST) / Update on NIST PQC Competition / NIST site video

NIST’s PQ crypto contest is now at round 3, down to 15 candidates (69 entered round 1). At the end of round 3, finalists should be ready for standardisation and fit most use-cases. A second track of ‘runners-up’ candidates should have potential for standardisation.

So, 15 -> 7 finalists and 8 Alternates:

There’s a mix of lattice-based, code-based, isogency-based approaches

Draft standards ready for public comment 2022-2023; final standard by 2024
