Crypto-Agile PKI for the Future

The State of Cryptography and the Need for Crypto-Agility

In an evolving cyber security landscape, defenses must continually evolve. Static systems are not only inherently insecure, they are less so with each passing day. This principle applies to cryptography as much as to other types of cyber-defenses. And with the advent of quantum computing, most analysts agree that common cryptographic algorithms will eventually become ineffective. The scale of the potential threat is immense — for nearly all the hardware and software we use in both traditional IT environments and burgeoning Internet of Things ecosystems.

Crypto-Agility for IoT

It is inevitable that many IoT devices will operate for durations that extend well beyond the effectiveness of their cryptographic keys. With this predestined outcome, readiness becomes a necessity. Not the readiness to respond to broken algorithms and their impact on data and communications, although that is also important, but the readiness to respond to crypto risk. The ability to act before threats become real, and to take action that results in a state where cryptography and its usage, whether for data in motion or data at rest, has its integrity upheld.
