Defeating Encryption and Cracking Bitcoin/Blockchain with Quantum Computing: Outlook Year 2021 and Beyond

Quantum computing defeating today's encryption still generates many business publication articles today. But what is the status of this threat after 5 years of intensive investment in quantum computing from both government and private industry and what about cracking Bitcoin/Blockchain.

This webinar examines where quantum computing hardware and algorithm developments stand today and what's likely to evolve over the next five years or so. Also, analysts tracking quantum computing shouldn't confuse quantum supremacy projections with the narrow focus of "application specific quantum circuits" specifically designed to defeat encryption and or crack Bitcoin/Blockchain.

This webinar is for cyber security executives and specialists who have the responsibility of assessing the lead time they have before deploying quantum safe cryptography solutions. If you believe nation state security agencies are developing quantum computers to decrypt your past and future intercepted transmission sessions, this high level webinar should be a must attend briefing.

"Keep it simple but not that simple"
- Albert Einstein

Meantime in order to make this lead time assessment for quantum safe cryptography deployment you need to track performance metrics of key components of quantum computing technology.  And to do this you need to understand how a quantum computing circuit works when designed for the sole purpose of defeating public key encryption only.  

This "30,000 foot view" Webinar (10 sessions, 5 minutes each) Addresses:

  1. Quantum Myth's vs. Reality: Quantum Supremacy (a myth)? Do consumer and small time criminals have to worry (no), do Bitcoin Investors have to worry about their investments (yes) and do nation stateshave to worry about cyber warfare (yes).

  2. What potentially makes quantum computers more powerful than today's electronic computers: qubit superpositioning, entanglement & interference (light on quantum mechanics)

  3. Qubit gates and circuit hardware explained (light on both the physics and mathematics)

  4. The encryption busting, Shor’s Factoring Algorithm explained (again, light on mathematics)

  5. A Step-by-Step walk through of what goes on within a quantum circuit designed to process a small public encryption key as numerical input, probablistic measurements along the way through the delivery of numerical private key as output thereby defeating encryption (light on physics and mathematics as well)

  6. Quantum Computing Challenges with decrypting large public keys (e.g. RSA 2048 class) and the performance metrics (number of entangled qubits, logic gates, longevity, etc.) cyber security specialists need to be monitoring.

  7. Leading quantum computer hardware options supported by IBM, Honeywell & Google vs. defeating encryption only, Application Specific Quantum Circuit (ASQC) architectures.

  8. Other Defeating Cryptography Targets for Quantum Computing specifically cracking Bitcoin/Blockchain

  9. Quantum Safe Cryptography Options (QSA & QKD) and deployment readiness challenges.

  10. Summarizing the Quantum Supremacy myths and who has to worry about quantum computing defeating encryption and/or cracking Bitcoin/Blockchain in year 2021 and Beyond
