Abstract:

Living in the world managed by technology involves taking into consideration all security aspects which may help, protect, and maintain digital environment healthy. As the technology evolves, the importance of upgrading is emphasized by customer perception and satisfaction and justifies the decision to switch from obsolete alternatives, as monolithic applications which can be found in most public system architectures developed during 2000s, to microservices and increased security ecosystems, as an indisputable requirement. Even so, current times are defined by innovation and quantum computers future usage seems to define a totally new era of security. This paper represents an overview of how this future perspective may affect public system applications and aims to provide a possible approach for integrating mathematical constructs into the security layer to increase protection for the modern software architectural style represented by microservices and which has become the favourite development alternative of the last years.


Keywords – microservices, encryption, quantum computers, lattice problems.
