Quantum computing – the next best thing?

The one who rules the quantum computer rules the world.
Forget the AI, zoom in and explore the meanders of the quantum world.
I hope you have all read by now that top tech companies are working on a Quantum Computer . And it is going well.

*Why should you care?*

IF or rather WHEN we break the quantum barrier and make the computers error-prone, it will impact the world as we know now.



Whenever you talk to a security specialist, they will tell you that no IT security solution can guarantee 100% protection. It can “decrease the surface of the attack” or “decrease the ROI of the attacker” – what does it mean?

Simply put, there’s an assumption that if it would take a hacker 34 years to break encrypted data – the data is protected. After all, “ain’t nobody got time for that”, right?

Which does not mean the encryption is unbreakable. An encrypted string is nothing more that a long string of random letters, numbers and signs. The computer that would want to break such a string would have to work through all possible combinations of all the possible signs. Which you can imagine takes time and effort.

For an “average” computer.
But not a quantum one.
Calculations that would take a regular computer 34 years can take quantum computer hours or minutes.
