Post Quantum Cryptography

The progress in developing quantum computers has threatened the commonly used symmetric and asymmetric key cryptographic systems, which is used by all the existing blockchains.

Quantum Tunnels

An Ozone node creates a specialized channel called a quantum tunnel to communicate data with another Ozone node.

A quantum tunnel secures its data using algorithms provided by Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC).


PQC in Ozone Chain

Ozone Chain uses Lattice-based PQC, which is the main method being promulgated in next-generation US NIST algorithm development.

Lattice-based cryptography uses constructions of cryptographic primitives that involve lattices, either in the construction itself or in the security proof.

Unlike RSA, Diffie-Hellman or elliptic-curve cryptosystems, which could be broken by a quantum computer, Ozone Chain’s lattice-based constructions are resistant to attack by both classical and quantum computers
