Future proofing the connected world: A quantum-resistant trusted platform module
Under the technical lead of the University of Surrey, a consortium of 15 academic and industry partners from across Europe are researching a Quantum-Resistant (QR) Trusted Platform Module (TPM) - a hardware chip which is used as a ‘root of trust’ for a computing system.
The aim is to develop QR crypto algorithms that can be used in a new generation of TPM-based solutions to enable security when quantum computers become reality – which could be as little as 15 years away.
Three use cases are being developed to test the algorithms in sectors where privacy and security are crucial: Online banking, activity tracking in healthcare, and device management.
