NetworkNewsBreaks – BANKEX Partners with Other Industry Leaders to Produce a Quantum-resistant Cryptographic Protocol

November 2, 2018 13:25:25

BANKEX, a company developing the Proof-of-Asset Protocol to bring Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS) product modules and blockchain together, has partnered with researchers at University of Waterloo, InfoSec Global and the Institute for Quantum Computing to develop a cutting-edge quantum-resistant cryptographic protocol. This technology may be a critical component of cybersecurity for the future of universal quantum computing as the first quantum-resistant, password-authenticated key exchange based on supersingular elliptic curve isogenies that can ensure security, even in a quantum environment. Based on an updated Password-Authenticated Key Exchange (“PAKE”) by BANKEX and its partners, the newly-developed protocol uses a password to generate functions that obscure auxiliary points used in the computation. To make this protocol accessible as the basis to make further advances in cryptography, the discoveries made by BANKEX, University of Waterloo, InfoSec Global, evolutionQ and the Institute for Quantum Computing have been recorded in an academic article posted on the International Association for Cryptologic Research.
