  • Breaking RSA Encryption – an Update on the State-of-the-Art
    You’ve heard me rambling about Quantum Computers and the impact they will have on cryptography. Probably the biggest and most well-known impact is that they will be able to use Shor’s quantum algorithm to crack all RSA/ECC cryptography. Fortunately, Quantum Computers powerful enough to do this are not yet in ... read more
