The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) announced on February 7, 2023, that it had selected the ASCON algorithm to become the standard for Lightweight Cryptography. In this whitepaper, we will explore what lightweight cryptography is and why it is worth considering for specific Internet of Things (IoT) use cases.
