Public-key cryptography is indispensable for cyber security. However, as a result of Peter Shor shows, the public-key schemes that are being used today will become insecure once quantum computers reach maturity. This paper gives an overview of the alternative public-key schemes that have the capability to resist quantum computer attacks and compares them.
