PQC Standardization Process: Announcing Four Candidates to be Standardized, Plus Fourth Round Candidates

NIST has completed the third round of the Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) standardization process, which selects public-key cryptographic algorithms to protect information through the advent of quantum computers. A total of four candidate algorithms have been selected for standardization, and four additional algorithms will continue into the fourth round.

A detailed description of the decision process and selection rationale is included in NIST Internal Report (NIST IR) 8413, Status Report on the Third Round of the NIST Post-Quantum Cryptography Standardization Process, which is also available on the NIST PQC webpage
