Talk Abstract
In this short contribution we will briefly mention:
(i) So called side-channel attacks on RSA public cryptosystem, one of the most frequently used ciphers;
(ii) Impact that scalable quantum computers will have, once they become available, on all deployed public key cryptosystems and electronic signature schemes.
A year ago I became one of the international team of experts working on a NATO grant entitled “Secure Implementation of Post Quantum Cryptography.” At the end I describe main goals of this project that are related to (i) and (ii).
