Quantum computers have the potential to break all the public-key cryptography we use today, such as TLS connections between web services, authentication certificates, SSH sessions, and all VPN connections.
In this short talk JP will give a clear description of what quantum computers could do and could not do, as well as an assessment of the risk (is it in 1 year, 1 decade, 1 century?). He’ll then overview post-quantum cryptography mechanisms, standardization efforts, and tools available today.
