Encryption and other Quantum Computer Impacts

Very soon, public key encryption methods will become obsolete. It won’t be long before quantum computers mature enough to easily crack the cipher keys used. Computers send encrypted messages for everything including internet banking, web browsing, shopping and email. Just think of all those credit card numbers, state secrets, medical records, you name it, travelling around the internet. This information is generally secure now because classical computers can’t easily solve the mathematical problems required to crack the encryption but a quantum computer of sufficient size

How Does a Quantum Computer Work?

Quantum computers are almost here and will have far ranging benefits and impacts, so what’s all the fuss about and how does a quantum computer work? Classical computers generally have to consider each possible outcome individually when working through complex simulations. It’s a drawback that makes them slow and inefficient when resolving problems especially when a very large number of possible outcomes or interactions need to be worked through and considered. When quantum computers are used to tackle similar problems, they do so by firstly
