Why Quantum will change the game
Quantum Physics is now enabling a brand new wave of innovations and are offering computing capabilities that are on a completely different level to those of today. In some fields, such as quantum sensors, quantum communications and cybersecurity, disruption will probably come in a matter of years and impact a wide variety of sectors.
Modern Encryption Deprication Timeline
John Prisco, CEO of Quantum Xchange, a company already working on commercializing quantum encryption, reminds us that, "This is not a question of if but rather when. The obstacles needed to overcome current limitations in quantum computing however are non-trivial and we are at least three years away from a quantum computer factoring Shor’s algorithm." Read More
Quantum Technologies | The Next Big Disruption
While it may sounds like a science fiction topic only interesting a small group of specialists, quantum technologies are actually very much part of our everyday lives. They have already brought huge benefits such as lasers, microelectronics, GPS and so on. However, quantum physics are now enabling a brand new wave of innovations and are offering computing capabilities that are on a completely different level to those of today. In some fields, such as quantum sensors, quantum communications and cybersecurity, disruption will probably come in a matter of years and impact a wide variety of sectors. On the long run, they promise huge efficiency gains that could help optimize resource usage – which is vital in an age of dwindling raw materials – and help us fight climate change. The impact could be so massive that quantum technology might even reshape the balance of power on a global scale, with big tech corporations and states investing heavily to gain a competitive edge.
U.S to develop ‘unhackable’ quantum internet
The Department of Energy is proud to play an instrumental role in the development of the national quantum internet,” said U.S. Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette. “By constructing this new and emerging technology, the United States continues with its commitment to maintain and expand our quantum capabilities
A quantum internet is in the works. The U.S. Department of Energy recently rolled out a blueprint describing research goals and engineering barriers on the way to quantum internet. The DOE’s latest blueprint for a quantum internet in the U.S. has four key milestones. The first is to make sure quantum information sent over current fiber optic cables is secure. Then to establish entangled networks across colleges or cities, then throughout states, and finally for the whole country.
With recent high-profile security decryption cases, encryption is more important than ever. Much of your browser usage and your smartphone data is encrypted. But what does that process actually entail? And when computers get smarter and faster due to advances in quantum physics, how will encryption keep up?
