Due to their computing power, quantum computers have the disruptive potential to break various, currently used encryption algorithms. Infineon Technologies AG, the leading provider of security solutions, is ready to provide a smooth transition from security protocols to next-generation post-quantum cryptography (PQC). The company has now successfully demonstrated the first PQC implementation on a commercially available contactless security chip, as used for electronic ID documents. This places Infineon in the pioneering position for encryption that withstands quantum computing power.
