Quantum Technology is likely to be the next big step in computing. The stakes of an adversary owning huge computational power are high, especially when it comes to protecting cryptographic secrets.

In this talk, you will learn the basics of quantum computation and the current state of quantum technology. We’ll then take a look at two attacks based on Shor’s and Grover’s algorithms, which are the killers of many cryptosystems like RSA. Finally, we will dive into some ways to defend against quantum adversaries, including a way of securing communications using quantum intrication.
