Our everyday lives and the security of the kingdom depend on digital keys that protect our secrets. But the development of quantum computers threatens that security.
The race to the next type of supercomputer
Two parallel races are currently underway:
One is about being the first with the new technology and accumulating secrets without anyone else discovering it. It’s a spies dream.
The second is about building new shelters – ones that will also last when the quantum storm comes.
China currently seems to have the advantage in the race where the strongest opponent is the United States. And in Sweden, preparations are underway for what in the world of cryptologists has been named “Q-day”.
