Quantum computers need new encryption methods

So far the system has been in order Public key authentication encrypted. The private and public key are used to protect the data. The system is actually considered secure, but can be hacked using quantum computers.

As the government portal “Science and Technology Daily” (Via South China Morning Post), as reported byA protective shield against quantum attacks” installed. Exactly how this works has not been published. For example, post-quantum cryptography involves mathematical problems such as: Initial factoring or Sports networks Which cannot currently be solved by other quantum computers.
