Jean-Charles Faugère, Co-founder, CTO

Jean-Charles Faugère is the co-founder and Chief Technical Officer of CryptoNext. Jean-Charles Faugère is a pioneer in the area of quantum-safe cryptography. Jean-Charles is well known for having developed efficient algorithms and high-performance software that permit to assess the security of a large variety of quantum-safe cryptosystems. Jean-Charles is the co-author of several submissions to the on-going NIST post-quantum standardization process.

Jean-Charles was research director at INRIA and leader of a joint team between INRIA Paris and Sorbonne University. He has been awarded by the Seymour Cray prize for a contribution to high-performance software and the Atos & Joseph Fourier prize in the area of quantum technologies for his contributions to quantum-safe cryptography.

CryptoNext: our vision

CryptoNext is a spin-off from Inria Paris and Sorbonne University. The quantum computer disruption is an opportunity, a source of progress for many fields, but also a serious threat to the security of electronic communications. A large-scale quantum computer will break the cryptography that permits to secure Internet. Our vision is that quantum computers is a risk that we cannot ignore.

PQAT (Post Quantum Advanced Technologies) is the former name of CryptoNext Security.
