Quantum computing and cryptography: credible threat or scaremongering?

February 6, 2019, Global Data Review

Trisha Anderson is quoted in Global Data Review regarding developments in cryptography. Ms. Anderson says that though the report “sounds a gloomy note,” she is optimistic that cryptography will keep pace with developments in quantum computing. She adds that we have to “assume that adversaries are collecting encrypted data that they could decrypt in the future. We will need to think about the length of time the encrypted data remains sensitive; is it 15 years, 50 years? If the data could be valuable to an adversary in 15 years from now, that could be damaging.”
