CNET: Quantum computers could crack today’s encrypted messages. That’s a problem

Quantum computers, if they mature enough, will be able to crack much of today’s encryption. That’ll lay bare private communications, company data and military secrets. Today’s quantum computers are too rudimentary to do so. But data surreptitiously gathered now could still be sensitive when more powerful quantum computers come online in a few years. The computing …
