CWTEC16 - The end of cryptography as we know it

An unexpected outcome of quantum computation is that the fundamental assumptions behind today's public key infrastructure that secures the Internet will become untrue. As a result, all the encrypted data now communicated and stored using PKI will become insecure. A "Quantum Safe Cryptography" is needed that can be resistant to quantum algorithm attack, and is being studied in research and standardisation organisations. This presentation will explain the need and discuss some of the approaches being taken.
