Will Quantum Computing pose a threat to Cybersecurity?
Updated: Jan 28, 2018
Quantum Computing is the next major advancement in the field of technology. Google has said that later this year, quantum computing may be able to solve a problem exponentially faster than classical computing for the first time. Quantum Computers are able to use the superposition of the qubit to solve problems in minutes that would take traditional computers weeks to solve. Although this show tremendous potential for Quantum Computing, it also reveals a major risk. Cybersecurity will be a major issue in the Quantum Computing world, as many of the encryption schemes that exist today are ones that Quantum Computers will easily compromise.
