Re: light vs quantum (y)

Why? Ok, an experiment - decode the following:


Is that code for "Nope"? How about "Yep!" Could it be "BlUe"? Maybe "lEFt".

Yes, just as the code that Caesar used was considered unbreakable at the time but today is a diversion for grade school children, many of the encryption techniques we consider secure today will be considered trivial in the near future. That only means that we will move on to more secure encryption techniques.

Answer to the experiment: “Maybe”. The encryption was done with a limited alphabet converting to binary, transposing bits using a rotating 256 bit key, and encrypted with a onetime pad that was delivered through a secure channel.
