Did NSA’s Cybersecurity Directorate Mean Agency to Build Quantum Resistant Technology or CryptoCurrency?

By IQT News posted 06 Sep 2019

(CoinDesk) The director of the NSA’s Cybersecurity Directorate, Anne Neuberger, said at a recent CyberSecurity Summit in Washington D.C. that her agency is developing a quantum-resistant “crypto.”
It should be noted that Neuberger’s comment may indicate that the NSA is working on a cryptography technology, not a cryptocurrency, with the twin meanings of the term “crypto.”
The NSA’s new Cybersecurity Directorate was announced in July and is “charged with preventing and eradicating threats to National Security Systems and the Defense Industrial Base,” according to the agency. It’s expected to start its activities on October 1.
