Recommended Practice for Post-Quantum Cryptography Migration

This recommended practice describes multi-step processes that can be used to implement hybrid mechanisms (combinations of classical quantum-vulnerable and quantum-resistant public-key algorithms). Existing post-quantum cryptography (PQC) systems are described. Desired characteristics of the hybrid mechanisms, such as crypto agility are also described.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.


No Active Projects

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.


No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.


No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.
