Decrypting classically encrypted messages using Shor's algorithm - How quantum computers outperform even Sherlock Holmes
Abstract: One of nowadays widely used public-key cryptography schemes is the RSA method, which is so secure that even Sherlock Holmes could not break it. Unfortunately, this encryption is in danger: Shor's algorithm and quantum computers make it easy to decrypt data like passwords, patents, and research results encrypted with the RSA scheme.
This talk explains how prime factorization of large numbers can be conducted on quantum computers using Shor's algorithm and how it can be utilized to break the RSA encryption method.
