How QAN Platform is solving the White House’s problem of quantum attacks
(HackerNoon) Ishan Pandey explains how the QAN Platform is solving the White House’s Problem of Quantum Attacks. Inside Quantum Technology summarizes.
US President Joe Biden recently issued a memorandum in compliance with the cybersecurity executive order released in May 2021 that outlines measures to strengthen the cybersecurity of the Department of Defense, Intelligence Community, and domestic surveillance networks.
The memorandum says that the NSA needs to make available quantum-resistant protocols and pl for the use of quantum-resistant cryptography where necessary. QAN Platform’s Lattice-based post-quantum cryptographic algorithm implemented in Rust programming language secures against quantum computer attacks. QAN uses a proof-of-randomness consensus algorithm, multi-language smart contract development, lattice-based post-quantum cryptographic algorithm, and multi-language smart contract programmed in Rust language.
Johann Polecsak, Co-founder at QAN Platform, said: “The recent memorandum published by WhiteHouse.gov on Improving the Cybersecurity of National Security must open everyone’s eyes how close the problem really is. The level of denial is still absurdly high related to the topic. Unfortunately, a lot of “semi-experts” misinform and convince the general public that the problem can be easily mitigated in the future. Upgrading already running, non-central decision capable distributed systems (e.g. Blockchains) will be IMPOSSIBLE without making cruel sacrifices to existing wallet holders (like losing funds if not migrating to post-quantum wallets in a given timeframe). Everyone holding any crypto-asset should educate themselves on the issue from credible sources.”
