Quantum-safe cryptography refers to efforts to identify algorithms that are resistant to attacks by both classical and quantum computers, to keep information assets secure even after a large-scale quantum computer has been built.

These algorithms are used to help ensure the integrity of a number of the firmware and boot processes. IBM z16 is the industry-first system protected by quantum-safe technology across multiple layers of firmware.
