Breaching Quantum Cryptography: Cracking the Uncrackable Code
Privacy and security is becoming increasingly needed in this all-interconnected years. Thus, the science of cryptography is kept on being improved day to day. The advent of quantum computers is a threat to digital privacy and security as it could break through the most complex cryptographic algorithms with ease. To counter this, the idea of quantum cryptography is proposed, offering a perfect security from the popular brute-force attacks by relying on quantum mechanics rather than mathematical equations like conventional cryptography. However, there are still a possibility of threats from a non-brute-force perspective. One of those possibilities is discussed in this paper.
