Postquantum cryptography: a silver bullet in the crypto-apocalypse

By 2025, quantum computers could be here. This would be a huge breakthrough in physics, but comes with dire consequences. These computers would enable new types of computations and could break today's most prevalent encryption systems in no time. In this talk I will tell you about the consequences of quantum computers on cryptography and the need to implement new encryption methods now to protect private and top-secret data against them.

Christine van Vredendaal was born on November 16th, 1989 in Breda. After completing the gymnasium at the Newman College in Breda, she enrolled in Eindhoven University of Technology in 2008 to study mathematics. During her time there she worked for the Public Relations team of the Mathematics and Computer Science department, served as Vice-chairman on the board of study association GEWIS and during her master thesis did an internship at Brightsight b.v. Her topic was Rank Estimation Methods in Side Channel Attacks. Since June 2014 she is a PhD Student in Dan Bernstein''s Cryptographic Implementations group within the Coding Theory and Cryptology group of the Mathematics and Computer Science department of the TU/e. She is working on several topics within the algorithmic cryptanalysis.
