  1. Users of the developer-version of Google Chrome (aka Chrome Canary) are able to take part in the testing of a quantum encryption protocol. When users connect to a Google site they will see the key exchange is handled by CECPQ1. This key exchange protocol that is being used is a blend of the New Hope algorithm (which is expected to be quantum safe) and ECDSA with Elliptic Curve 25519 (which provides conventional encryption as a safeguard). The experiment will run for two years and will help with the evaluation of server performance and overheads associated with implementing a Post-Quantum algorithm.
