To clarify, are you claiming that NIST's "reminder to not put candidates into products until the standard is done" is asking for this further delay only for hardware and not for software? If so, do you have any evidence for this claim?

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?

He’s mostly talking about hardware
