The quantum computing apocalypse is imminent

The quantum computing apocalypse is imminent | Cyber Defence | Scoop.it

The National Security Agency, too, has sounded the alarm on the risks to cybersecurity in the quantum computing age. The NSA’s “Commercial National Security Algorithm Suite and Quantum Computing FAQ” says that “many experts predict a quantum computer capable of effectively breaking public key cryptography” within “a few decades,” and that the time to come up with solutions is now.


According to many experts, the NSA is far too conservative in its prediction; many experts believe that the timeline is more like a decade to a decade and a half, while others believe that it could happen even sooner.

The Wassenaar Arrangement's latest language is making security researchers very happy - CyberScoop

The Wassenaar Arrangement's latest language is making security researchers very happy - CyberScoop | Cyber Defence | Scoop.it
Security researchers are welcoming rewritten language that includes hacking tools in a treaty that regulates the global trade in weapons technology, saying it fixes rules that, if implemented in the U.S., would have outlawed much of the daily commerce of the cybersecurity industry. The recent agreement, reached at the annual plenary session of the Wassenaar Arrangement — a 42-nation arms control treaty to which the U.S. is a signatory — was broadly welcomed by policy makers, industry sources and security researchers. “We applaud the hard work of the U.S. interagency and our partners in industry, the research community, and foreign governments to clarify software and technology controls that could have had a negative impact on legitimate cybersecurity,”  Rob Joyce, White House Cybersecurity Coordinator, told CyberScoop. The changes provide exemptions to the export control requirements the treaty imposes on hacking tools. Researchers engaged in vulnerability disclosure and incident response will no longer have …
