How to Future-Proof Long-Lived IoT Devices with Quantum-Safe Signatures

Presented by

John Ray, Thales and Alexander Truskovsky, Isara

About this talk

The number of IoT devices increases every day, including durable “things” that hadn’t been connected in the past such as cars, smart meters and implanted medical devices. These devices represent a unique security challenge as they must remain in use and secure for several years to come. However, with the onset of large-scale quantum computing – which will render modern security measures obsolete – IoT device manufacturers need to begin looking at different options to secure their devices or they risk being overtaken by spoofed software updates in the future. In this talk, Thales and ISARA will explore securing connected cars using the next-generation of digital signatures: Stateful hash-based signatures. Join us as we cover the following topics: •A brief overview of quantum computing and its effect on current public key cryptography – no PhD required! •Understanding the unique challenge quantum presents to durable IoT devices •Exploring new, quantum-safe options for signatures and roots of trust such as stateful hash-based signatures •Learn how quantum-safe options are different, what makes them challenging to work with and what steps needs to be taken to use them today •Discover Thales’ Luna HSM Post-Quantum Functionality Module (FM) - the first commercially available HSM to offer stateful hash-based signatures ready for implementation and how you can get started today •Learn how crypto agility can help you quickly react to cryptographic threats by implementing alternative methods of encryption
