The scene is a classic.

You've followed all industry standards, used strong cryptography, and keep your boot loader and kernel up-to-date with LTS versions. You constantly upstream, and offer frequent updates to your customer base.

Everything is going well until suddenly, a fundamental security vulnerability is found. Not in the kernel, and not in the hardware cryptographic accelerator that you depend on for system performance. No this time it's a much bigger problem. The baddies have solved prime number factorization with quantum computers and every security system that relies on traditional cryptography is vulnerable.

So how do you respond? It's not as if you can change the crypto accelerator once a product has shipped! You can move to a new quantum-secure algorithm in software, but how do you keep the performance up, and keep using all the same APIs and middleware that has been in your system for years? And how can you react quickly?

In this presentation, Kris Chaplin shows some technology and techniques to do just this. All that is required is some thought up-front when designing your next system, and much more can be achieved - even after your product has shipped!
