back to article It's 2058. A quantum computer is just another decade away. Still, you curse Cloudflare

Cloudflare is the first major internet infrastructure provider to support post-quantum cryptography for all customers, which, in theory, should protect data if quantum computing ever manages to break today's encryption technologies. Starting today all websites and APIs served through Cloudflare support post-quantum TLS based …

    China and others are stealing data now to decrypt later

    "and others" being absolutely everyone who can get of the traffic. But make sure to deflect notice from the "Good" (?) guys by only naming the Big Bad du jour.

    As I said earlier and say now: a quantum computer is not needed. AI by default produces the desired superposition, because it is an intuitive system.

    Indeed, when parsing each obtained phrase acquires its own weight, which characterizes its importance. For example, a weight equal to one says that the phrase is the only one in this text, as well as that the text is laconic. In most cases weights are irrational numbers, which must be rounded to natural or rational because otherwise it is impossible to perform any mathematical operations. Summarising, the rounding creates the desired superposition, which makes the idea of quantum... not needed.

    "key agreement"

    Kyber is a "key agreement mechanism", or technically a KEM – a Key Encapsulation Mechanism. Using "key agreement" as an noun phrase sounds like a bunch of government leaders sat down and signed a piece of paper.

    It's bad enough we have to put up with people referring to IT security as "cybersec" or even just "cyber" (when security and cybernetics are entirely distinct fields), and cryptocurrencies as "crypto". Could we try to at least not strip technical phrases down to the point of absurdity?
