Rambus cracks post-quantum ‘QcBits’ cipher with side-channel power analysis

Rambus security researchers have successfully conducted a side-channel assisted cryptanalysis attack against QcBits, a code-based public key algorithm based on a problem thought to be resistant to quantum computer attacks. QcBits – pronounced “quick-bits” – [...]

NIST bolsters random number generators

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has published the second draft of a publication that details design principles for entropy sources, which measure the randomness of generated numbers. As FCW’s Sean Lyngaas recently [...]
