Special relativity keeps digital identities secure | The laws of physics have been helping to keep sensitive information secret for well over a decade, with banks and other organizations using quantum cryptography to carry out very secure communications. But new research shows that special relativity can also be exploited to guarantee secrecy.  Source: physicsworld.   Special relativity keeps digital identities secure…

In a quantum future, our economy needs to be protected. A cyber security expert explains why. | The privacy of online communication is currently protected by cryptography, which shields information as it travels around the internet. It secures everything from making online purchases to accessing work email remotely. With capabilities of quantum computing growing rapidly, industry experts reckon that it will take at least another 10 years before quantum computers with very large numbers of qubits are available.  Source: WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM.   In a quantum future, our economy needs to be protected.
