    Quantum computing calls for new encryption techniques?

    With the phenomenal speed to be expected from quantum computers in the future, todays encryption techniques such as RSA will be pretty vulnerable. A quantum computer could factorise 600bit+ numbers in a relatively short period of time. Aside from Shor's algorithm, are there any other mathematicians out there who are trying to invent a new algorithm?

    Nobody has any thoughts on this? With quantum computing being the future, we literally have the rewrite the entire internet and every aspect of security.
