Leading the Charge with Post-Quantum Semiconductor Technologies

SEALSQ’s post-quantum semiconductor technologies provide a 'root of trust'—a reliable foundation for secure computing and transaction verification in a world threatened by quantum computing capabilities. By integrating quantum-resistant hardware with upcoming PQC (Post-Quantum Cryptography) standards such as CRYSTALS-Dilithium, CRYSTALS-KYBER, and SPHINCS+, SEALSQ aims to safeguard against quantum attacks while enhancing the performance and trustworthiness of digital transactions.

SEALSQ's post-quantum chips offer several groundbreaking innovations:

  • Quantum speedup: Leveraging quantum superposition, SEALSQ chips provide unprecedented data processing capabilities, revolutionizing AI training times and inferencing speeds.
  • Quantum annealing & optimization: These chips utilize quantum annealing to quickly find optimized solutions, which is a game-changer for machine learning applications and other computationally intensive tasks.
  • Quantum machine learning: At the heart of SEALSQ's technology is pioneering quantum machine learning research, which promises to enhance AI performance, speed, and accuracy.
  • Post-quantum cryptography: In response to emerging security challenges, SEALSQ chips are built with post-quantum cryptographic methods, offering robust protection against quantum computing threats.
  • Quantum networking & communication: The chips incorporate quantum communication methods, including quantum key distribution, to ensure ultra-secure data transmission.
  • Quantum-enhanced sensors: Featuring advanced quantum-based sensors, SEALSQ chips provide the semiconductor industry with superior precision in testing and quality control.

The demand for post-quantum semiconductor technologies is rising across various sectors, including fintech, defense, and space research. This growth is further supported by government initiatives and contributions from major market players.

SEALSQ service will bring tools and support to any IoT device manufacturer willing to achieve compliance to the “US Cyber Trust Mark” program by leveraging its expertise in Security by Design. Specifically, IoT devices embedding a VaultIC secure microcontroller hosting a unique trusted identity provided and managed by INeS PKI service would be more likely to achieve compliance with the U.S. government program guidelines.

The “U.S. Cyber Trust Mark” initiative, which is expected to launch in 2024, is spearheaded by the FCC, and will seek public feedback. It aligns with cybersecurity criteria from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and especially NIST IR8425 guidelines emphasizing secure default passwords, data protection, regular software updates, and incident detection.

As part of the program, the Federal Communication Commission (“FCC”) would allow manufacturers of IoT devices or products that meet certain cybersecurity standards to use an FCC-endorsed label known as the “U.S. Cyber Trust Mark.” The FCC will work with various government agencies to promote consumer awareness and encourage retailers to prioritize these certified products. Products with the FCC-endorsed label will feature a QR code linking to detailed security information, promoting transparency and informed purchasing decisions.

To ensure the program’s integrity, regulatory bodies and the Department of Justice will provide oversight and enforcement. The initiative will also focus on consumer-grade routers due to their vulnerability to serious cyber-attacks, with NIST setting specific security standards expected by the end of 2023.

Products fortified by these advanced security measures could soon flaunt the “U.S. Cyber Trust Mark”, a visible pledge of superior cybersecurity, directly influencing consumer preference in an increasingly security-conscious market. This distinctive shield logo, symbolizing resilience against cyber threats, is expected to steer consumers toward smarter purchasing decisions, recognizing and prioritizing their digital safety.


SEALSQ is at the forefront of technological innovation in digital security and semiconductor technology. With a focus on developing solutions that address the challenges of the post-quantum era, SEALSQ is committed to ensuring the security and integrity of digital interactions and transactions across various industries.

SEALSQ focuses on selling integrated solutions based on Semiconductors, PKI and Provisioning services, while developing Post-Quantum technology hardware and software products. Our solutions can be used in a variety of applications, from Multi-Factor Authentication tokens, Smart Energy, Smart Home Appliances, and IT Network Infrastructure, to Automotive, Industrial Automation and Control Systems.

Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) refers to cryptographic methods that are secure against an attack by a quantum computer. As quantum computers become more powerful, they may be able to break many of the cryptographic methods that are currently used to protect sensitive information, such as RSA and Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC). PQC aims to develop new cryptographic methods that are secure against quantum attacks.
