Will Quantum Computers mean the end of Unbreakable Encryption?

Friends, first of all no encryption scheme is “unbreakable”; None.  Its simply a function of time and effort.  That being said, there is a computing revolution coming, although nobody knows exactly when. What are known as “quantum computers” will be substantially more powerful than the devices we use today, capable of performing many types of computation that are impossible on modern machines. But while faster computers are usually welcome, there are some computing operations that we currently rely on being hard (or slow) to perform.

Specifically, we rely on the fact that there are some codes that computers can’t break – or at least it would take them too long to break to be practical. Encryption algorithms scramble data into a form that renders it unintelligible to anyone that does not possess the necessary decryption key (normally a long string of random numbers). This is what lets us send information securely over the internet. But will quantum computers mean we can no longer create encryption techniques that can’t be broken?

For one system, known as symmetric encryption, quantum computing doesn’t pose much of a threat. To break symmetric encryption you need to work out which (of many) possible keys has been used, and trying all possible combinations would take an unimaginable amount of time. It turns out that a quantum computer can test all these keys out in one square root of the time it would take existing computers – in other words, slightly less time but not so dramatically that we need to worry.  This, in part, is the reason we have been working hard on OTPSME; unbroken in over two years with over 6000 decryption attempts.

But for another type of encryption system, known as asymmetric or public-key encryption, it doesn’t look so good. Public-key systems are used for things like securing the data that comes through your web browser. They encrypt data using a key that is available to anyone but need another private key for decryption.  Fortunately, we have already foreseen this pending disaster. Researchers across academia, government and industry are currently working hard to develop new public-key encryption techniques that rely on different, harder calculations that will be immune to the powers of a quantum computer. I am confident that these efforts will be successful, particularly since we already know some techniques that appear to work. By the time that quantum computers arrive, we will be ready.  Below is a really good primer on Encryption in general as well as Quantum Encryption:

Still Think HRC is Honest & Trustworthy? Check out ‘Clinton Cash’…

Clinton_Cash_coverClinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich is a 2015 New York Times bestselling book by Peter Schweizer, in which he investigates donations made to the Clinton Foundation by foreign entities, paid speeches made by Bill and Hillary Clinton, and the Clintons’ personal enrichment since leaving the White House in 2001.  It investigates alleged connections between Clinton Foundation donors and Hillary Clinton’s work at the State Department.  The book argues that the Clinton family accepted lavish donations and speaking fees from foreign donors at times when the State Department was considering whether or not to award large contracts to groups and people affiliated with those donors.  One word… CORRUPTION.

Benghazi Select Committee Reports…

benghazi4-e1351495805540The Benghazi Select Committee Reports have finally been issued.  Even though the State Department, several key witnesses and HRC herself have withheld information, failed to appeared before the committee or flat-out lied (talking to you Hilary), both the Democratic and Republican members have separately release their versions of the report.  Seems they can’t even agree on a common set of facts.  First was the Democrats.  We guess Elijah Cummings, the ranking Democratic member, wanted to make sure their views had been digested (and barfed up…) before the Republicans release their report two days later.  Rep. Peter Roskam (IL-o6) introduced the Republican version of the report with a short video describing the utter failure of the Obama administration and the Hilary Clinton State Department.  Read the Democratic version, Read the Republican version and then read the only account that really matters; that of the annex security team.  The warriors who were actually there.

Navy SEAL Defends AR-15 With a Warning for America…

Dom_RasoFriends, please meet former United States Navy SEAL Dom Raso.  He’s calling out critics in the media and politics who have renewed calls to ban the AR-15 and similar firearms in the wake of the Orlando terrorist attack.  Dom has a very simple message: Stop talking, because you don’t know enough about the subject. Spread the VooDoo…

Donald Trump’s New Political Ad Really Pisses Us Off…

Friends, to be clear, we’re pissed off with Hillary Clinton.  Still can’t believe this Bitch hasn’t been indicted yet.  The VooDoo has shown that HRC is just spinning more lies in an attempt to cover her previous lies about what happened in Benghazi.  Donald Trump’s new Political Ad does a great job summarizing the anger the families of the four Americans killed in 2012 and the criminal disregard HRC has for the truth.  We can’t wait to see Mr. Trump DESTROY HRC in the US Presidential Primary Debates.  Watch and spread the VooDoo…
