Beating the codebreakers with quantum cryptography
Quantum cryptography may be essentially solved, but getting the funky physics to work on disciplined computer networks is a whole new headache.
Cryptography is an arms race, but the finish line may be fast approaching. Up to now, each time the codemakers made a better mousetrap, codebreakers breed a better mouse. But quantum cryptography theoretically could outpace the codebreakers and win the race. Forever.
