ISARA and CSS Introduce the First and Only Quantum-Safe, Full-Stack PKI

ISARA Corp., the leading provider of security solutions for the quantum computing age, and Certified Security Solutions (CSS), the leader in PKI-based digital identity software and services, announced today that their innovative partnership has resulted in release of the world’s first quantum-safe, full-stack public key infrastructure (PKI) solution.

With the new PKI solution, the automotive industry has the ability to ensure that its over-the-air (OTA) software updates are secure against attack from today’s conventional systems and quantum computers in the future. By deploying a quantum-safe PKI today, carmakers can accomplish mass software updates at scale without the burden of extremely complicated (nearly impossible) recalls and dealer visits when current classic Roots of Trust become unsafe with the dawn of large-scale quantum computers. Connected vehicles on the road today, and all connected vehicles in development, will need protection from the potential negative effects of large-scale quantum computers.

“Quantum computing will deliver amazing benefits, but will also create a new and very serious security threat,” said Scott Totzke, CEO & Co-founder of ISARA Corp. “We’re proud to partner with CSS by integrating a new level of quantum-safe security into their PKI solutions. Helping to solve this security challenge for the auto industry is a big leap forward toward the reality of completely connected vehicles that remain secure and safe.”

Experts estimate that large-scale quantum computers will be available within the next decade, with some predicting in as early as eight years. With immense computing power driven by quantum mechanics, these computers offer the potential for huge advancements in areas such as artificial intelligence and material design. But that computing power also will be capable of breaking public key cryptography that protects all of the data, software updates and technology we now safely store, share and use.

“Simply stated, solutions that are not built on a foundation of crypto-agility will not be secure in the future,” said Kevin von Keyserling, President and CEO of CSS. “We’re excited to announce the extension of our Enterprise and IoT security solutions together with ISARA. Our commitment to crypto-agility and its enablement has allowed CSS clients to upgrade from deprecated algorithms such as SHA-1, and systematically migrate from Roots of Trust requiring replacement. The CSS/ISARA offering futureproofs the security of devices into the quantum computing era.”
