Two "SESAMES Awards" for post-quantum cryptography on contactless security chip


Infineon Technologies AG has been recognized with two SESAMES Awards for the world's first post-quantum cryptography implementation on a contactless security chip. The prestigious industry awards were presented today at the TRUSTECH 2017 in Cannes. Infineon was awarded in two of six categories: Cybersecurity and eGovernment.


Infineon is a pioneer in the development of encryption mechanisms that can withstand the computing power of future quantum computers. The company is already preparing for the smooth transition from currently used security protocols to post-quantum cryptography.


Infineon is the first provider to transfer post-quantum cryptography to contactless smart cards. The small chip size and limited storage space for storing and executing such a complex algorithm as well as the transmission speed were challenging.
