DMTF Seeks Industry Feedback on Support for Post Quantum Cryptography in Specifications

Posted on Thu, 06/06/2024 - 10:00

DMTF’s Security Protocols and Data Models (SPDM) Working Group is requesting industry feedback on a proposal regarding support of the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) selection of Post Quantum Cryptography (PQC) algorithms in future SPDM specification versions.

View the WIP presentation here.

SPDM is looking for specific feedback regarding the following:

  • Among NIST’s selected PQC algorithms, which algorithms and which parameters sets is your company planning to support?
  • Is your company considering support for Post-Quantum/Traditional (PQ/T) hybrid key and signature schemes? If yes, which combinations?
  • What are your thoughts on the proposed plan for PQC and/or hybrid schemes in SPDM?
  • When does your company need PQC and/or hybrid schemes in SPDM?

All feedback must be received by end of August 2024. Feedback may be submitted via a SPDM Working Group representative or through our website at
