In today's #NISTPQC talk, Moody said (1) NIST will share any concrete post-quantum IP news as soon as it has it; (2) he's "happier" about IP news now than he was months ago; (3) NIST has already made its selection and is reviewing its report. So, um, did something secret happen?

Moody also took the new Rainbow attack from @WardBeullens as an argument "to not put candidates into products until the standard is done", which Moody said would be 2023 but later said maybe 2024. Um, how about we _try_ to protect Internet users against future quantum computers?
