Jon Lindsay, associate professor in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs and School of Cybersecurity and Privacy, contributed a chapter to the new book Quantum International Relations: A Human Science for World Politics. In it, Lindsay drops several Star Wars references in discussing how while quantum computing has the potential to break almost all digital security, this does not necessarily mean the end of cybersecurity.

"First, a new generation of quantum-safe cryptographic protocols will probably be available and implemented well before engineers can overcome all the challenges of fielding a large-scale quantum computer," Lindsay writes. "Second, even if a quantum computer becomes available before quantum-safe offsets are in place, intelligence advantage ultimately depends more on social and organizational factors than technology alone."
