We are pleased to announce that we have joined the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI). ETSI is an independent, not-for-profit organization with more than 850 member organizations worldwide. They bring together a diversified pool of large and small private companies, research entities, academia, government and public organizations to produce globally-applicable standards for Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), including fixed, mobile, radio, converged, broadcast and internet technologies. SecureRF is involved in ETSI’s Industry Specification Group on Quantum Safe Cryptography (ISG QSC).
“Urgency around the quantum computing threat to current cryptographic methods is increasing as we have seen accelerating progress from Microsoft, IBM, Google, and others now building quantum machines,” said Louis Parks, chairman and CEO of SecureRF. “Standards groups such as ISG QSC will play an important role in providing guidance and strategies to prepare for a secure post-quantum world.”
SecureRF is actively participating in standards groups focused on future-proof cryptographic solutions. In addition to ETSI, SecureRF is involved in several other organizations and initiatives including:
- National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) Standardization Process
- International Organization for Standardization (ISO) SC27 (IT Security Techniques) and SC31 (Automatic Identification and Data Capture Techniques)
- Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) J3061 (Cybersecurity Guidebook for Cyber-Physical Automotive Systems) and J3101 (Requirements for Hardware-Protected Security for Ground Vehicle Applications)
- Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Crypto Forum Research Group
ETSI is one of only three bodies officially recognized by the EU as a European Standards Organization (ESO). More about ETSI can be found here.
Parks concluded, “Joining ETSI is an important milestone for SecureRF. We look forward to working with the global entities driving standards and the broader industry interests they represent.”
