With Google recently achieving quantum supremacy, quantum computers are posing a more significant threat to classical encryption. Although it may be a while before quantum computers can break classical encryption, we will discuss why it is important to consider this now. Quantum cryptography is the study of using quantum properties to perform cryptographic tasks and is one way of providing quantum-safe encryption. This talk will present a walk-through of a popular quantum key distribution scheme: BB84 , along with some alternative post-quantum cryptographic methods.
