Adam Corbo: Quantum Contingencies in Cryptography: A Short Primer on Quantum Computers. He says quantum computers present a radical new technology for performing complex calculations and computations with an efficiency so potentially vast that its impacts are scarcely imaginable to the majority of today’s coders and hardware developers. In short, the advent of quantum computing poses a direct and substantial threat to modern cryptography, which also happens to be the very backbone of the Internet as we know it. He argues that quantum computers could shorten the length of time required to perform certain operations (such as factoring large numbers) from centuries down to seconds.
