- Eye Opening
For centuries, cryptographers and code breakers have played a game of tit for tat, each trying to outdo the other. And just when cryptographers thought they’d found a flawless way to encode data, along came quantum computing, offering a master key to all the world’s data. Cryptographer Craig Costello explains the basics of encryption and the dangers quantum computing poses. At its core, quantum computing is an esoteric concept, and Costello does get technical. But if you aim to keep your data secure, you’ll want to grasp encryption’s limits in the face of quantum computing.
