72 qubits? That's almost a quarter of an Ark long. Guess we're back to massive computers.

I have a friend who is a real-life cryptographer. As in he reviewed AES, probably did the crypto in your phone and knows more math than all of us put together.

His comment on crypto-currency?  "Hell no. Not even with your money. Unless you already got in, in which case, have an exit strategy".

Why?

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sho​r%27s​_algorithm and https://en.wikipedia.​org/wiki/Grover%2​7s_algorithm

He believes that in between 3 and 10 years, probably 5, quantum computing will end crypto as we know it. Factoring large primes, elliptical curves, discrete logs - all fall down.

ETSI, IACR and NIST are all betting on this.

Obtain the source codes...
Set environment variables. First, choose your target, in this case "alphabet-bristlecone". If it doesn't work use a newer vwersion of GCC.
Build binutils. ...
Build bootstrap GCC. ...
Build newlib. ...
Build GCC again with newlib. ...
GDB with PSIM. ...
Compile your code.

It'll be interesting when they start building quantum computers with around 400 qubits. I've heard that is the range they are predicting will be able to crack the encryption on bitcoin wallets in a realistic time frame.

Dolce and Gabbana are smart to diversify. We won't need fashionable clothing anyway once we're all quantum minds in a quantum jar on a quantum shelf in a converted quantum loft. That will be nice.

Is that the one with the patent issue?  I was looking at  McEliece; i think that's one that IETF is looking at, but I'm a bit long out of that field to keep up anymore :-( And math is hard.

And there are people already at work on making encryption schemes that even quantum computers can't break easily. As of right now we're still an order of magnitude away from the number of qubits it would take to break some of the higher-tiered implementations easily (yes, even including Bristlecone). So I would guess closer to 10 years. Something tells me we're not going to be looking at data security in the same way by then anyway, encryption will probably be preempted by something else entirely.
