IBM team is Building Encryption Methods that will be Safe from Quantum Computing

With computing power increasing faster than ever before, it’s possible to crack previously secure encryption, and with the advent of quantum computing, that possibility gets ever closer. (See https://www.hpe.com/us/en/insights/articles/quantum-of-encryption-1707.html for the details.) However, a collaborative effort among computer scientists and academics to safeguard data is winning attention. The goal is to create encryption methodologies that cannot be broken by quantum computing.
