(EnterpriseTimes) Quantum-resistant blockchain platform QAN has released an Ebook entitled “Quantum Computing and Blockchain: The Definitive Guide“ that highlights the threat posed by quantum computing. The document gauges the security of current blockchains plus the likelihood of a quantum computing breakthrough breaking their cryptography.
The 39-page ebook provides an assessment of the current capabilities of quantum computing. It addresses:
**what quantum hardness means
**why quantum safety is needed
**the best post-quantum algorithms to protect crypto networks.
Johann Polecsak, CTO of QAN and co-author of the ebook, said: “Many IT professionals and CTOs are neglecting and even denying quantum computing threats with the flawed reasoning that it must surely be a long time ahead, when the reality is that this threshold is likely to be reached in the next five years.”
