Convening to Act
Quantum Resistant Cryptography (QRC) in Software
March 2024 - Speaker, Slide Presentation, & Agenda Info

The NCF's Progress Through Partnership with the National Security Agency (NSA) is essential for staying ahead of emerging threats and ensuring the resilience of our nation's security infrastructure. Thus, the NCF, in partnership with the NSA, is sponsoring a series of dialogues called Convening to Act programs to identify emerging challenges in cybersecurity and cryptology. The first of these programs took place in December 2023 and explored the topic of Quantum Resistant Cryptography in Firmware.

On 11 March 2024, the NCF hosted the 2nd Convening in the series. The program featured a multidisciplinary dialogue, including government, academia, and industry, to discuss advancing the adoption of Quantum Resistant Cryptography in Software Applications for the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) and beyond, including small and medium-sized businesses. This well-received program took place in Hanover, MD, with approximately 100 people in attendance.
