Risky Business #247 -- Could a quantum leap spell the end of crypto?
On this week's show the NSA's former Technical Director of Information Assurance, Brian Snow, joins the program to warn us that recent advancements in quantum computing could invalidate all of our cryptographic systems within 15 years.
So we'd better get cracking on finding alternatives!
This week's show is brought to you by the security team at Adobe! Big thanks to them. And Adobe's head of security and privacy Brad Arkin will be along later in the show to discuss Adobe's planned deprecation of Flash on mobile devices. As of September 2013 the whole lot goes dark permanently, so how DO you manage that sort of support withdrawal?
That's this week's sponsor interview.
Adam Boileau joins us for a look at the week's news headlines. Please see the show notes for more info.
