IBM Unveils New Technology

The technology behind IBM’s quantum-safe roadmap, which consists of a comprehensive collection of tools, capabilities, and approaches coupled with in-depth experience for an end-to-end journey to make organizations safe, has just been released.

The ‘IBM Quantum Safe Technology’ was introduced by IBM during its yearly Think event, which is when this information was made public.
The Quantum-Safe Roadmap, according to IBM, aims to use technology to give industry the cybersecurity capabilities needed for this new era.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology announced four quantum-resistant algorithms for standardization in July of last year, which served as the world’s wake-up call to begin the quantum-safe transition. IBM claimed to have invented three of those algorithms.

Quantum-safe cryptography as defined by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute, refers to efforts to identify algorithms that are resistant to attacks by both classical and quantum computers, to keep information assets secure even after a large-scale quantum computer has been built.

“At IBM, we had already started making our technology quantum-safe, including the IBM z16 mainframe, and IBM Tape storage technology. But we realized that our clients have unique needs when it comes to embarking on their own quantum-safe transitions.

“Our end goal for clients is crypto-agility in the increasingly fast-paced world of cybersecurity. Crypto-agility is the ability to protect your systems against emerging vulnerabilities, adapt to meet new compliance requirements, and respond to breaches in a way that maximizes resource efficiency and minimizes operational disruption,” IBM noted.

The firm further revealed that it launched the IBM Quantum-Safe due to the need for agility which comprises three key actions: discover (identify cryptography usage, analyse dependencies and generate a Cryptography Bill of Materials), observe (analyse cryptography posture of compliance and vulnerabilities and prioritise remediation based on risks) and transform (Remediate and mitigate with crypto-agility and built-in automation).

For each key action, an end-to-end solution with technology capabilities to prepare clients for the post-quantum era was developed including IBM Quantum Safe Explorer, IBM Quantum Safe Advisor, and IBM Quantum Safe Remediator for the discover, observe, and transform stages respectively.

IBM added, “For the Discover stage, we developed IBM Quantum Safe Explorer to scan the source code and object code to surface all cryptographically relevant artefacts, pinpoint their locations, and uncover dependencies.
