The process NIST initiated in 2016 continues as it looks for encryption algorithms that will be secure against the anticipated arrival of practical quantum computing. In this update I report on the first 4 Candidates to be Standardized, and the timeline for completion. It is coming faster than you may have realized.

moore's law

Interesting episode but Moore's law has to do with transistor density not systems getting better. Also, how Ahuka know the inner workings of Ukrainian OpSec? I'm guessing he doesn't.
