Quantum Computers and Nanotechnology Make Quantum Cryptography Necessary, A Basic Explanation of Quantum Cryptography

Quantum computing and quantum computers are in advanced stages of development due to recent nanotechnology advances in these areas. These computers promise to be so fast and powerful that our modern supercomputers will be little more than toys in years to come. The problem is that their sheer capacity for processing data means that they will likely be able to readily crack even the most advanced encryption methods through brute force.
