NIST publishes quantum resistant encryption algorithms – Tutanota already uses them in a prototype!
Encryption is the best tool to protect your private data. To make sure your data stays secure in the future, post-quantum secure encryption is needed. Now, NIST pushes ahead with CRYSTALS-KYBER, CRYSTALS-Dilithium, FALCON, SPHINCS+ algorithms to harden encryption against future attacks from quantum computers. We at Tutanota have already built a prototype with these same algorithms. We plan to upgrade the encryption in Tutanota well before quantum computers are able to break currently used algorithms.
