Snowden documents state the NSA is running a $79.7 million research program with the aim of developing a quantum computer capable of breaking encryption; IBM scientists achieve critical steps to building first practical quantum computer ; Breakthrough opens door to affordable quantum computers
Jan 02, 2014 · The idea of quantum computing was proposed in the 1980s by physicists like Richard Feynman and David Deutsch, but it wasn't obvious that a quantum computer would be good for anything. A quantum computer, on the other hand, might solve the same problem in mere minutes because it quite literally operates across multiple dimensions simultaneously. The ultimate code breakers If you know anything about encryption, you probably also realize that quantum computers are the secret KEY to unlocking all encrypted files . Jan 05, 2014 · The NSA development of a quantum computer is partially financed with funds belonging to research program codenamed “Penetrating Hard Targets” for which the Government reserved $79.7 million. “The geographic scope has narrowed from a global effort to a discrete focus on the European Union and Switzerland,” one NSA document states. A classical computer uses bits of information, 1s and 0s. A quantum computer uses what are called qubits, which can be a mix of both 1 and 0 simultaneously and which exist in a delicate quantum Feb 03, 2018 · National Security Agency headquarters in Fort Meade, Maryland If a state has invested a huge amount in a quantum computer, the logical thing is to attack cryptosystems Ian Levy - from the National
