International Workshop on Post-Quantum
Cryptographic Migration 2024

Date: July 6, 2024
Venue: Beijing, China

In 2017, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) officially launched a global call for proposals for Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC), which has entered the fourth round. It has brought a wide and profound impact on cryptography and even cyberspace security, and will trigger a brand-new change in the global cryptographic industry chain and cybersecurity ecosystem. The PQC standardization work carried out by the U.S. first in the world is a landmark event for cyberspace security in the post-quantum era. Driven by the development in the USA, other developed countries such as the EU, Japan, and South Korea have accelerated the pace of their own countries/regions to develop post-quantum cryptographic standards. Right now, we are expecting the first batch of the standardized algorithms like ML-KEM as FIPS 203 and 204 to come out in this summer and a new era of post-quantum migration is going to its full swing.

At the same time, the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) is leading a large-scale PQC migration program. PQC migration involves the complete replacement of the entire Internet trust cornerstone, its significance exceeds any previous IT technology migration like the IPv4 to IPv6 global migration, and is of vital importance to the secure and healthy development of today’s digital economy.

There have been three international workshops organized by the Ding Lab which are organized by Prof. Jintai Ding and other internationally renowned experts. This International Workshop on Post-Quantum Cryptographic has become the most influential international workshop in this field in Asia. The 4th workshop will focus on post-quantum migrations as the first batch of the standardized algorithms like ML-KEM as FIPS 203 and 204 are coming. As in the past, it will open its doors to interested research institutions and enterprises at home and abroad to jointly address this global cyberspace upheaval!

This workshop will be an one-day event on July 6 of 2024 covering the following topics:

1.Keynote speeches on PQC migration by speakers from Europe, America, Japan, Korea, Singapore and other countries, who are experts from industry, academia and governments.
2.Showcase on PQC migration for global large-scale computer networks.
3.Industry representatives from research institutes and vendors will give a panel discussion on PQC migration.
