Many researchers, ourselves included, have been aiming for quite some time to protect Tor traffic against a hypothetical future adversary who has access to a quantum computer capable of breaking ECDH key exchanges which have occurred in the past and been recorded.

This is the parent ticket for organising the work into smaller, byte-sized chunks and tracking overall progress.

These tickets, tagged with 034-removed-*, are no longer in-scope for 0.3.4. We can reconsider any of them, if time permits.
