Think I stumbled upon something I can really dive into… This is a really hot topic that deserves a lot of attention, and quantum computing, or the breaking down of binary 1s and 0s into smaller data packets that range from anywhere from 0-1 and are called “qubits,” can effectively mitigate a lot of hacks from occuring. However, it will also cause encryption protocols to be obsolete as well.
Important that quantum computing is years away, but networks can be built on “quantum links.” This is the key and the real prize to keep an eye on. I think this could be the definitive way to ensure the U.S. takes a defense approach to cybersecurity by suring up the technology that data packets travel through.
This topic originated after a friend shared with me an extremely intriguing interview about the life of a hacker. He talked about cybersecurity similar to how I described it in an earlier post as being a “band-aid,” and he introduced the idea of how quantum computing will affect cybersecurity and encryption.
Here it is:
I also started using the WP app on my phone. Hoping this will allow for an easier way to share quick posts on thoughts or articles that come up. Should allow for a better journal-like approach to adding content to the blog.
