Quantum-safe VCert
Updated Nov. 12 2020

ISARA provides a VCert extension for the Venafi Platform that enables Quantum-safe machine identities and crypto agility using the ISARA Radiate Toolkit and ISARA Catalyst Agile Certificate Methodology with certificate service providers.
Business Outcomes
  • Protect critical assets with Quantum-safe security

  • Lower migration costs with backward compatible hybrid certificates

  • Improve crypto agility posture

Integration Features
  • Standard Go Crypto package with added Dilithium digital signature algorithm support

  • Standard Go Crypto/x509 package supports the Dilithium algorithm for all certificates in the chain and single-tree HSS for CA certificates

  • Standard Go Crypto/x509 package with support for Recommendation ITU-T X.509 | ISO/IEC 9594-8 standard compliant hybrid certificate format


Solution Overview

ISARA, the world’s leading provider of agile quantum-safe security solutions, has enabled Venafi customers with quantum-safe cryptography and machines identities via a VCert Go extension. By creating an extension for VCert Go to support quantum-safe cryptography, developers will now be able to generate hybrid certificates that contain both today's standard algorithms and quantum-safe algorithms in preparation for the future.

Agile Quantum-safe Machine Identity Orchestration using VCert allows you to:

  • Generate Quantum-safe cryptographic keys 
  • Create Certificate Signing Requests (CSRs) for hybrid certificates
  • Verify hybrid certificates using primary and alternate algorithms
