(VentureBeat) BlackBerry announced what it claims is “quantum-resistant” code signing to its lineup of cryptography tools. As scientists and corporations seek to turn quantum computers into reality, Blackberry is preparing a new set of digital security defenses. Blackberry will partner with ISARA Corporation, which will provide cryptographic libraries that are part of its own quantum-safe security solutions.
Code signing refers to methods of ensuring that software code has not been changed by anyone but the original author. Charles Eagan, chief technology officer at BlackBerry, said in a statement. “By adding the quantum-resistant code signing server to our cybersecurity tools, we will be able to address a major security concern for industries that rely on assets that will be in use for a long time.”
