Description

quantum computers are a threat already now.
Despite the fact that yet (no known) quantum computer exists that could break current crypto, a dedicated attacker can already now record vast amounts of data and simply wait ten to fifteen years, and then decrypt it all in a couple of days. So now is the time to think about all possibilities.

Won't get to this for a while, the right place to start the discussion is with a proposal with specifics, or put on the roadmap. "Start thinking about it" probably isn't appropriate for a ticket. We are working on NTCP2 now, and we're explicitly excluding PQC as a goal.
