Quantum computers are still a long way off, but many companies are making progress. The point of Giuseppe Gagliano
Powerful quantum computers capable of solving difficult computational problems (and possibly undermining today's cryptographic algorithms) are still far from being realized, but Google, IBM, Honeywell Quantum and Cambridge Quantum are making progress and many other efforts. Microsoft is in the quantum race for supercomputers along with IonQ, Nvidia and many others - more than 240 companies have attracted $ 8.512 billion in investments, according to Constellation Research. And there is a lot to do: Accenture is also working with IonQ to bring quantum computing to more companies. IBM launched the 127 qubit quantum processor Eagle this month. It beat Google's 72-qubit quantum computer, driven by its Quantum AI campus in California and its Sycamore processor. Quantum computing, which defies classical computer logic 0 and 1, could solve some problems that classical computers simply cannot handle. But we are still at the beginning. The making of these computers will radically change cryptography leading to the creation of quantum cryptography. The importance of these changes for national security was underlined by MI6 director Richard Moore: "Our opponents are pouring money and ambition into mastering artificial intelligence, quantum computing because they know that mastering these technologies will give them supremacy ". • December 12, 2021COMMENT
It is clear as day that quantum computers undermine today's encryption algorithms, including the famous public and private key RSA. The fact that 240 companies have had large investments does not exclude that some come to demolish all the existing cryptography, to take possession of the data and from the point of view of crypto currencies take possession of immense wealth in bitcoin and in other crypto currencies. The fact that the Chinese government is in the race leads to further concerns. They talk about a phantom quantum cryptography based on artificial intelligence, but for now it is just another attempt to take large state and private investments. Artificial intelligence-based quantum cryptography does not exist, there is no theoretical basis for it, and it will certainly come much later than quantum computers. We have our own CRIPTEOS 3001 encryption system which is capable of withstanding the most powerful quantum computers, having two 128 kilobyte keys. The three-key 40 megabyte version we made for our digital currency can easily be extended to the cryptographic product, where 256 would be raised to the 41,000 attempts needed to crack it with brute force attacks. Just do the mathematical operation and subtract from the exponent the number of attempts that the fastest quantum computer can make in a year. Result: the number of years it takes for the quantum computer to break into our system. An enormity. CRIPTEOS 3001 is present and functioning like the new digital currency. The software created in Java has been optimized with special software patented by us which leads to the exclusion of any possibility of errors and bugs. The speed of encoding and decoding is outstanding. We worked 12,000 hours to achieve these results. Vendors now have to choose. Either create an alliance against cybercrime and recognize the validity of our patented software or go on their way by assuming the responsibility of making the Enemy win. There is no third way. Regarding the opinion that we only have big keys, it does not take into account that we have analyzed the whole history of cryptography and created a system that solves the problem of frequency analysis, a problem that violated the classic cryptographic systems. Sometimes simple things are forgotten, such as the crank dynamo that powered cars in the early twentieth century, but which later proved very useful for powering cell phones in Africa in areas where there is no electricity. By taking the best of the past we build the future.
