Features of PQC CARD®
- World’s first smart card equipped with CRYSTALS-Dilithium post-quantum cryptography
Post-quantum cryptography is encryption technology that is difficult for even a quantum computer to decipher. NIST has been screening potential candidates for standardization since 2017 and in July this year selected multiple methods, including CRYSTALS-Dilithium. The methods selected are expected to become de facto global standards.
- Ease of use maintained with no changes on the user side
Users do not need to replace hardware. Reader/writers, communication protocols, and the like for existing smart cards using current cryptography methods can continue to be used in the same way with PQC CARD®, delivering excellent authentication speed and performance.
