What Google, IBM, Microsoft and more do on quantum computers Giuseppe Gagliano Quantum computers are still far away, but many companies are making progress. Giuseppe Gagliano’s point Powerful quantum computers capable of solving difficult computing problems (and perhaps undermining today’s encryption algorithms) are still far from being realized, but Google, IBM, Honeywell Quantum and Cambridge Quantum are making progress and many other efforts. Microsoft is in the quantum race of supercomputers along with Ionq, Nvidia and many others: over 240 companies in fact have attracted 8.512 billion dollars in investment, according to Constellation Research. And there’s a lot to do: Accenture is also working with Ionq to bring quantum computing to multiple companies. IBM launched the 127 qubit Eagle quantum processor this month. He beat Google’s 72-qubit quantum computer, driven by his Quantum AI campus in California and his Sycamore processor. Quantum computing, which defies classical computer logic 0 and 1, could solve some problems that classical computers simply can’t handle. But we’re still at the beginning. The creation of these computers will radically change cryptography leading to the creation of quantum cryptography. • The importance of these changes for national security was underlined by MI6 director Richard Moore: “Our opponents are pouring money and ambition into mastering artificial intelligence, Quantum computing because they know that mastering these technologies will give them supremacy”. 12 December 2021 COMMENT It’s clear as day that quantum computers undermine today’s encryption algorithms, including the famous public and private key RSA. The fact that 240 companies have had big investments does not exclude that some get to demolish all the existing cryptography, to take possession of the data and from the point of view of cryptocurrencies possess immense wealth in bitcoin and in other cryptocurrencies. The fact that the Chinese government is in the race leads to further concerns. They’re talking about a fictional quantum cryptography based on artificial intelligence, but right now it’s just another attempt to take large state and private investments. Artificial intelligence-based quantum cryptography does not exist, its theoretical basis does not exist and will certainly come much later than quantum computers. We have our own CRIPTEOS 3001 encryption system that is able to withstand the most powerful quantum computers, having two keys of 128 kilobytes. The version with three keys of 40 megabytes that we made for our digital coin can be easily extended to the cryptographic product, where you would have 256 raised to the 41,000 attempts needed to force it with brute force attacks. Just do the mathematical operation and subtract from the exponent the number of attempts that the fastest quantum computer can do in a year. Result: the number of years it takes for the quantum computer to hack into our system. An enormity. CRIPTEOS 3001 is present and functioning as the new digital currency. The software made in java has been optimized with special software patented by us that lead to exclude any possibility of errors and bugs. The encoding and decoding speed is exceptional. We have worked 12 thousand hours to achieve these results. Now vendors have to choose. Either create an alliance against cyber-crime and recognize the validity of our patented software or follow in their own way assuming the responsibility to win the Enemy. There is no third way. Regarding the opinion that we only have big keys does not take into account that we have analyzed the whole history of encryption and implemented a system that solves the problem of frequency analysis, a problem that violated the classical systems of encryption. Sometimes simple things are forgotten, such as the crank dynamo that powered the cars of the beginning of the twentieth century, but then proved to be very useful to power mobile phones in Africa in areas where there is no electricity. Taking the best of the past we build the future.
