The Impact of Post Quantum Cryptography on UEFI BIOS

Presented by

Jiewen Yao and Vincent Zimmer, Intel

About this talk

In order to resist the threat from quantum computers, National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) started the Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) project in 2016 and tried to define a set of new standard - quantum-resistant public-key cryptographic algorithms. The industry is evaluating the impact of adoption of these post quantum cryptography algorithms, such as network transport layer security (TLS) protocol. The UEFI BIOS includes a set of security feature that requires the cryptography, such as secured boot, capsule update, secure recovery, HTTPS boot, measured boot, etc. In this webinar, the speakers will introduce the impact of the PQC to the UEFI BIOS and the prototype work to adopt the PQC in the firmware area.
