ISARA Corp., the world´s provider of agile quantum-safe security solutions, has announced the launch of ISARA Catalystâ¢ Agile Digital Certificate Technology, a first-of-its-kind technology that allows organizations and manufacturers to secure their infrastructure and connected devices from the looming threat of an encryption-breaking quantum computer, the company said.
ISARA Catalyst enables quantum-safe authentication today by allowing for multiple cryptographic signature algorithms to be utilized in a single digital certificate — reducing redundancy and offering the agility to switch seamlessly from classical encryption to quantum-safe encryption as needs demand, without affecting compatibility with legacy systems or adherence to global standards.
ISARA is targeting Catalyst for large enterprises, such as government agencies with complex public key infrastructures or corporations with an array of durable connected devices (IoT). Catalyst can help ensure, for example, that when a quantum computer capable of breaking encryption exists, autonomous vehicles and power grid systems remain absolutely certain that their communications are secure, and that the commands and software updates they receive are being sent by a trusted source.
As development of quantum computers accelerates, experts predict that it will be eight to 10 years before a quantum machine is capable of cracking current encryption — to increased awareness of the need to prepare now for the quantum threat, especially when security obligations are long-lived.
ISARA is a cybersecurity company specializing in creating production-ready quantum-safe security solutions for today´s computing ecosystems. We provide our partners with agile quantum-safe technologies to enable a seamless, cost-effective and simplified migration of their security solutions. As a commercial solution provider within a rich academic and research ecosystem, ISARA is part of a collaborative effort to raise awareness of quantum threats, and design and implement quantum-safe solutions that will work globally.
