Most of the NSA statement was unexceptionable. However, one passage was puzzling and unexpected: "For those partners and vendors that have not yet made the transition to Suite B algorithms [42], we recommend not making a significant expenditure to do so at this point but instead to prepare for the upcoming quantum resistant algorithm transition.... Unfortunately, the growth of elliptic curve use has bumped up against the fact of continued progress in the research on quantum computing, necessitating a re-evaluation of our cryptographic strategy." https://eprint.iacr.org/2015/1018.pdf (via Jsn)
