I believe that the conjugacy search problem is broken by probabilistic attacks (see chapter 7). I am not sure if this completely ends braid cryptography, however, since there are other difficult problems in braid groups that have not been studied extensively.
Supersingular isogenies are a rather recent attempt at post quantum security. You will have a hard time finding an efficient and secure implementation, and even if you write one yourself, the algorithms have not yet seen that much cryptanalysis. (Although that's a subjective judgement call.) If post quantum security wasn't a concern, you could choose from ...
You can take a look at Dan Berstein's Cureve2519. It's a non-NIST, non-NSA curve and he has his own adaptation of DSA that goes with it. However, I suppose it's possible to parallelize an attack on this, so it may not be resistant to quantum computing attacks. As for symmetric encryption, it's important to note that AES was developed by the international ...
If you need security against quantum attacks, there aren't that many options. I would go for a lattice-based encryption like NTRU or something based on ring learning with errors. There are no "magic numbers" involved and the assumptions they are based on have been scrutinized by the academic community. NTRU has been around for a decade and has pretty good ...
