Abstract

Quantum computing is a new and fundamentally different field of computation that utilizes the strange but well understood properties of quantum mechanical systems to enable implementation of new procedures and systems which have consequences for the field of modern cryptology. In particular, the new kinds of computational structures and algorithms offered by the field of quantum computing may well serve to make some aspects of cryptology such as certain domains of cryptography defunct while spurring its development in other areas both with respect to various mathematical research fields and exotic hardware systems for ensuring secure communication in a post-quantum world.
