Standard for Post-Quantum Network Security

This standard defines a method to implement optimized post-quantum version of existing network security protocols [1]. It is based on a multi-layer protocols approach and allows data packets and/or data encapsulated to be quantum resistant to future cryptographically relevant quantum computers (CRQCs). This standard includes hybrid modes for key exchange and authentication and specifies mechanisms for handling the larger public key sizes of post-quantum algorithms. This standard excludes any definition of a new post-quantum cryptography (PQC) algorithm.
