DISA Requests Info to Evaluate Quantum-Resistant Algorithms & Cryptographic Solution

By IQT News posted 09 May 2019

(ExecutiveBiz) The Defense Information Systems Agency is in need of industry-based information regarding the use of quantum-safe algorithms for cybersecurity. The agency is looking to pursue research and development of applications that would transmit quantum-encrypted information.
DISA announced in a FedBizOpps notice that it intends to evaluate the use of these algorithms and cryptographic approaches to protect the Department of Defense’s information technology infrastructure. 
The posting reads: This request for White Paper (RWP) is being issued to conduct research, development, and testing activities associated with evaluating Quantum-Resistant algorithms, and cryptographic solution that can be used to enable quantum-encrypted information transfer using symmetric encryption.
