Toward Unbreakable Quantum Encryption for Everyone

Posted on September 12th, 2016.

Hacked recently covered the efforts of the Chinese government to build unbreakable quantum communication networks. According to analysts, quantum communications networks are so expensive that they could have a “recentralizing effect,” enabling states to recover the ground that they have lost to decentralizing digital...

Quantum Physicists Are Working on ‘Unbreakable’ Cybersecurity Systems

Posted on November 24th, 2015.

A group of physicists in Australia’s capital city of Canberra are looking away from crypto-based mathematics encryption to work on encryption based on the laws of physics, or more specifically – quantum physics. This form of encryption is deemed ‘unbreakable’. A group of physicists at the Australian National University (ANU) are...
