Should Crypto Fear Quantum Computing?
CSO At Taurus
Feb 13, 2023
This year has seen the emergence of a variety of AI products showing us a glimpse of the exponential age. But one other innovation has the potential to completely change our world – Quantum computing. Quantum computers are very different from the classical computers that have been around for more than half a century. They harness the power of quantum mechanics to sift through huge numbers of possibilities and extract solutions to problems that might have otherwise been impossible to solve.But then, if quantum computing can break crypto-encryption, what will happen to blockchain technology? Is there a chance that we’ll see quantum computers break current cryptography in our lifetime? If not, what will we see in our lifetime?
To answer those questions, we are happy to talk to our CTO Charles Guillemet and Jean-Philippe Aumasson, Chief Security Officer at Taurus, with a quick appearance from Chat GPT, for a deep, slightly technical, but always insightful conversation, 100% free of sci-fi speculation.
