Quantum Cryptography


Before you lose your mind over the possibility that the NSA will hack your medical records with a quantum computer, just remember that quantum cryptography is a real thing, too. Luddite paranoia about technology “informs” the majority of linkbaiting and rhetoric on this topic, which is a sad statement on our post-scientific media. Quantum computers are in everyone’s future whether we want them or not, and so is quantum encryption. We will all have to learn to live in a world with these technologies — all of us, even the NSA.

    Quantum cryptography only protects the transmission of data from point A to point B. It doesn’t protect stored data. You haven’t grasped even the most basic aspects of the problem.
