  1. Ian Axelrod Says:

    Is it possible that we can add a review of the effects of quantum computers on information security?

  2. richde Says:

    Sure. There are two ways quantum computing fits it and they both relate to cryptography. Ther first is the field of quantum cryptography, an approach that uses entangled quantum states of exchanged photons to encrypt data. The second is using quantum computers to factor large numbers (necessary for cracking public key cryptosystems) We’ll see where we can fit it in.
