Future Proofing the Connected World: A Quantum-Resistant Trusted Platform Module (FutureTPM)

Type: International Project

Duration: from 2018 Jan 01 to 2020 Dec 01

Financed by: European Commission

Prime Contractor: UNIS - University of Surrey (University)

The main goal of FutureTPM is to provide a new generation of TPM-based solutions, incorporating robust and physically secure Quantum-Resistant (QR) cryptographic primitives (formally verified), to ensure long-term security, privacy and operational assurance in the complex domain of future ICT systems and services. The objective is to enable a smooth transition from current TPM environments, based on traditional cryptography, to systems providing enhanced security through QR cryptographic functions, including secure authentication, encryption and signing functions, thus, turning the host device into a “hardened” security token that may also remain secure long-term against an enhanced threat landscape in quantum computing deployments. By designing an innovative portfolio of high-security QR algorithms for primitives like Key Management, Encryption, Signatures, Hash-Functions, Message Authentication Codes (MACs) and Direct Anonymous Attestation (DAA), FutureTPM will fill the perceived gaps in the current status of cybersecurity.
