Predicting performance for post-quantum encrypted-file systems

Daniel J. Bernstein
Abstract

Public-key cryptography is widely deployed for encrypting stored files. This paper uses microbenchmarks and purchase costs to predict the performance of various post-quantum KEMs in this application, in particular concluding that Classic McEliece is (1) the most efficient option and (2) easily affordable.
