PQSDK v1.1.0 User Guide


The nShield Post-Quantum Software Development Kit (PQSDK) provides users of Security World Software with the ability to generate and use keys with public-key cryptographic algorithms selected by NIST as part of the Post-Quantum Cryptography standardisation process.

PQSDK is installed on top of your Security World Software, allowing you to use your existing keys and algorithms alongside post-quantum algorithms.

The PQSDK provides the user with the opportunity to experiment with the use of PQC digital signature algorithms and signatures but at this moment the underlying Security World protection mechanisms still use classical (non Post-Quantum) crypto. It should not be used in an environment where a full post-quantum resistance security solution is required.
