Cloudflare Kyber the first quantum encryption for sites

We have mentioned many times that current encryption techniques will be very easily broken in the future by quantum computers.

Για να προετοιμαστούμε για αυτό, η Cloudflare εγκαινιάζει ένα μετα-κβαντικό πείραμα στο οποίο μπορούν να εγγραφούν οι ιδιοκτήτες ιστότοπων για να προσθέσουν υποστήριξη για δύο υβριδικά μετα-κβαντικά κλειδιά κρυπτογράφησης: τα X25519Kyber512Draft00 και X25519Kyber768Draft00.


These keys will work alongside existing encryption schemes to ensure compatibility.

Currently, adding these primary keys to your site won't do much because no browser supports them yet. For now, browsers will fall back to existing encryption schemes, which are not quantum-resistant.

But Cloudflare said the internet will move to quantum cryptography in the coming years, and it hopes this beta release will give its customers a head start.

Η μετακβαντική κρυπτογραφία που χρησιμοποιεί η Cloudflare ονομάζεται Kyber. Τον περασμένο μήνα, το Εθνικό Ινστιτούτο Προτύπων και Τεχνολογίας των ΗΠΑ (NIST από το National Institute of Standards and Technology) decided to standardize Kyber, and the final specifications will come in 2024. By starting this test, Cloudflare hopes to drive the adoption of post-quantum cryptography.

In terms of features, Kyber does not need as much computing power as existing schemes, but it has larger keys and uses more RAM. Cloudflare believes that if Kyber is used alone, connections to websites could be faster. But in this test, a hybrid model is used, so connections will be a bit slower.

If you want to try it on one of your domains, read Cloudflare's step-by-step steps to set it up.

Warning: The new Kyber crypto will receive changes incompatible with the older crypto in the coming months, and Cloudflare's app will change to be compatible with early adopters. Additionally, if the community identifies issues, then additional solutions will be added to Cloudflare's application. Due to the rapid pace of change, Cloudflare cannot guarantee long-term stability or ongoing support. The Best Technology Site in Greece
