Abstract

Few people are aware that each advancement we make in quantum computing brings us closer to a complete breakdown of our digital security and privacy. As quantum-driven advancements in cryptographic analysis and computing technology are achieved, the cryptographic algorithms that protect our private online information and data is threatened. This paper identifies issues that need to be addressed before scaled quantum computing is achieved including identifying replacements for our current cryptography algorithms and ensuring a safe transition through cryptographic agility.
