Quantum cryptography Hacking is futile


Highly sensitive information abounds on the Internet. The general rule is that such content cannot be intercepted and read thanks to sophisticated encryption mechanisms. Future high-performance quantum computers could, however, quickly crack these secrets.

Therefore, it is fortunate that advances in quantum mechanics have led to the development of extremely strong cryptography in addition to new, much quicker methods. The language describes quantum key distribution as being resistant to channel attacks. [Read More…]
