DIFFERENTIAL POWER ANALYSIS ON SIKE – PART 1

    • Modern cryptography is threatened by the arrival of quantum computers. Indeed, Shor’s quantum algorithm (a quantum algorithm) can be used to break modern cryptography in polynomial time due to a quantum boost in the factorization problem.  As a response, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) launched a call for standardization of quantum-resistant algorithms. In 2020, the candidates of the third round were announced, and Supersingular Isogeny Key Encapsulation (SIKE) is one of the schemes that were announced as alternative candidates (i.e., those which were not rejected but not finalists as well).
