Monkey Happy…Even when PQC algorithms are mathematically secure, they can potentially be broken by a class of exploits known as side-channel attacks.  These attacks exploit the algorithm implementation in hardware or software rather than the underlying mathematical problem itself and underline how important it is that any side-channel vulnerabilities are identified and addressed before solutions are widely rolled out… 

…Riscure a global security advisory lab for Side Channel Analysis (SCA), has partnered with PQShield to evaluate PQShield’s SCA testing and validation processes…

…With this project, the two companies will evaluate PQShield’s SCA testing process. They will also share knowledge about post-quantum cryptography and its impact on side-channel attacks, advancing companies’ and governments’ understanding of how new quantum-secure algorithms can be secured through robust validation and countermeasures…
