Summary: The talk will compare and contrast proposed quantum-resistant cryptographic algorithms. This will include discussion of lattice-based algorithms, multivariate cryptography, code-based cryptography, super singular isogeny key exchange, and hash functions. The advantages and disadvantages of each, as well as current research in these algorithms, will be explored.
