WI Acronym:  FS_256_Algo
Rapporteur:  Mr. Evans, Tim P.

Quantum computing poses a long-term threat to information security. This may apply to some of the current protection measures in 5G systems. These threats are studied in this document so as to ensure that 5G systems remain secure also in the future.
The threats will impact symmetric and asymmetric cryptographic algorithms in different ways. This document focuses on symmetric cryptographic algorithms. In particular, it focuses on the implications of introducing 256 bit cryptographic keys and algorithms.
