NIST Post-Quantum Cryptography- A Hardware Evaluation Study

Authors: Kanad Basu, Deepraj Soni, Mohammed Nabeel, Ramesh Karri


Experts forecast that quantum computers can break classical cryptographic algorithms. Scientists are developing post quantum cryptographic (PQC) algorithms, that are invulnerable to quantum computer attacks. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) started a public evaluation process to standardize quantum-resistant public key algorithms. The objective of our study is to provide a hardware comparison of the NIST PQC competition candidates. For this, we use a High-Level Synthesis (HLS) hardware design methodology to map high-level C specifications of selected PQC candidates into both FPGA and ASIC implementations.
