Cybersec Innovation Partners Limited (CIP) and the ISARA Corporation, the provider of crypto-agile and quantum-safe security, have announced the detail underpinning a strategic partnership which will allow CIP to offer bespoke solutions and services to enable a seamless migration of digital trust infrastructures to post-quantum security.
The onset of large-scale quantum computing will challenge the security of current public key cryptography and create widespread vulnerabilities. The rigidity of today’s infrastructure makes cryptographic migrations complex and costly. Establishing crypto agility in existing systems is the first step towards seamless migrations.
The partnership allows CIP to offer quantum-safe, crypto-agile and hybrid certificate offerings from ISARA. This ground-breaking technology enables systems to be quantum-safe without disruption of operations, while also maintaining the availability and integrity of existing security systems.
The new agile certificates will be recognisable by CIP’s Whitethorn Platform: a digital certificate, key discovery and lifecycle management solution that allows for discovery, management and automation.
Andy Jenkinson, Group CEO at CIP, said: “Quantum computing is the next major development within the global technology area. The biggest challenge to cyber security is the lack of understanding of cryptography and PKI in today’s classical computing, let alone in a post-quantum world. The partnership with ISARA will enable all of our clients to realise full discovery, management and automation of their crypto-agile PKI.”
Scott Totzke, CEO and co-founder of ISARA, added: “We’re excited to partner with CIP to ensure its clients’ migration to quantum-safe cryptography starts with integrating crypto-agility, an essential first step towards cryptographic resilience and long-term security. This is welcome news in these turbulent times.”
