Quantum Technology News – Issue #7

The most exciting thing about these last few weeks is that companies and governments have actually started putting timelines on when you will be able to have the first quantum computers. Large companies have publicly ...

Quantum Technology News – Issue #5

Intel joined the race for quantum computing in a big way, by investing $50 million into a collaboration with Delft University. A Yale University group published a very readable paper yesterday with a multilayer scheme for ...

Break RSA encryption with this one weird trick

Cryptographers HATE it! Too much math; didn’t read — Shor’s algorithm doesn’t brute force the entire key by trying factors until it finds one, but instead uses the quantum computer to find the period of a ...

Why don’t post-quantum encryption standards exist yet?

With increased funding, quantum computing is moving into a “Manhattan Project” era, where the timeline to a small, useable quantum computer could be drastically reduced. When the first quantum computers are ready to go in ...

The Quantum Network Hacker Lab

TL;DR — Quantum computers are going to render a lot of current encryption techniques obsolete. Though quantum systems are inherently more secure, quantum networks and quantum key distribution suffer from some of the same vulnerabilities that classical ...

Quantum Machine Learning — Dr. Scott Aaronson’s “Read the Fine Print”

TL;DR — The task is to figure out how to look at problems in a way that would fit them into quantum algorithms for speedup. This does not mean that this is simple at all, or ...

How secure will our data be in the post-quantum era?

It’s the end of modern cryptography as we know it, and we feel fine. Build your security for the next 50 years. If the speed of processing doubles every two years, make sure your cryptographic systems ...
