Root Causes Episode 160: Purpose-built Quantum Computers for Breaking RSA
Tim Callan, Senior Fellow at Sectigo & Jason Soroko, CTO of PKI at Sectigo
About this talk
A new academic paper has described how a purpose-built quantum computer could break RSA encryption in fewer qbits than commonly are thought necessary possible. In this episode our hosts summarize the basic argument in this highly technical paper and its potential implications on the Quantum Apocalypse.
