Office of the National Cyber Director (ONCD)

The Office of the National Cyber Director (ONCD), the Executive Office of the President’s newest policy office, has extensive responsibilities under National Security Memorandum-10. NSM-10 outlines the Administration’s plans to take advantage of the opportunities offered by emerging quantum technologies while simultaneously protecting the nation from threats posed by quantum technology. On the threat side, NSM-10 recognizes that while sufficiently mature quantum computers are probably still 20 years away, most classified information requires protection for 25 years and sensitive personal data can have a lifespan that is even longer. As such, NSM-10 requires Federal agencies begin their transition to quantum safe cryptographic systems. As a first step, NSM-10 requires Federal Agencies to inventory their most critical cryptographic systems by May 4. The EOP will release specific instructions to Federal Agencies on inventorying cryptographic systems and developing cost estimates for this transition, by mid-February.

Open Q&A discussion.
