Presence of quantum computers is a real threat against the security of currently used public key cryptographic algorithms such as RSA and Elliptic curve cryptography. Isogeny computation on elliptic curves is believed to be difficult even on a quantum computer and hence isogeny-based protocols represent one of the few truly practical approaches to constructing quantum-resistant cryptosystems. In this paper, the authors investigate the efficiency of implementing a newly proposed post-quantum key-exchange protocol on PC and ARM-powered embedded platforms.
