liboqs version 0.3.0

About

The Open Quantum Safe (OQS) project has the goal of developing and prototyping quantum-resistant cryptography. More information on OQS can be found on our website: https://openquantumsafe.org/ and on Github at https://github.com/open-quantum-safe/.

liboqs is an open source C library for quantum-resistant cryptographic algorithms. Details about liboqs can be found in README.md. See in particular limitations on intended use.

liboqs can be used with the following Open Quantum Safe application integrations:

  • OQS-OpenSSL 1.1.1: A prototype integration of liboqs-based authentication and key exchange into TLS 1.3 in our fork of OpenSSL 1.1.1; see the OQS-OpenSSL-1_1_1-stable branch of our OpenSSL fork's repository.
  • OQS-OpenSSH 7.9 portable 1: A prototype integration of liboqs-based authentication and key exchange into SSH in our fork of OpenSSH 7.9; see the OQS-master branch of our OpenSSH fork's repository.
  • OQS-BoringSSL: A prototype integration of liboqs-based authentication and key exchange into TLS 1.3 in our fork of BoringSSL; see https://github.com/open-quantum-safe/boringssl.

liboqs can also be used in the following programming languages via language-specific wrappers:

Release notes

This is version 0.3.0 of liboqs, which was released on June 10, 2020. Its release page on GitHub is https://github.com/open-quantum-safe/liboqs/releases/tag/0.3.0.

What's New

This release continues from the 0.2.0 release of liboqs.

Key encapsulation mechanisms

  • Classic McEliece: Newly added
  • Kyber: Add "90s variants": Kyber512-90s, Kyber768-90s, Kyber1024-90s
  • LEDAcrypt: Newly added
  • ThreeBears: Newly added

Digital signature schemes

  • Falcon: Newly added
  • MQDSS: Update to v2.1
  • Picnic: Update to v2.2
  • qTesla: Update to v1.0

  • SPHINCS+: Add AVX2 and AESNI implementations

Other changes

  • Switch build system to CMake
  • Add support for building via Mingw on Windows
  • Support cross compilation via CMake to Raspberry Pi, Android, Windows, and more
  • Most optimizations dependent on specific CPU features are automatically detected at runtime, rather than being selected at compile-time
