The importance of their work became apparent ten years later, when mathematician Peter Shor discovered that a hypothetical quantum computer would render effectively useless the conventional cryptography systems underpinning the privacy and security of todayâs Internet communications. The Astrophysical Journal Letters 464 (1), L1. The ones marked. New articles related to this author's research. The Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series 148 (1), 161. But I think people are too eager to know what itâs going to be used for right away, especially considering that quantum information is very delicate. He also discovered quantum error correction, an essential requirement for enabling and scaling quantum computations. New articles by this author. Our quantum cryptography, on the other hand, remained unscathed.Â», Bennett and Brassard would go on working closely together for several decades. Done. Both have also collaborated with Shor, who explains his own contribution as follows: âCurrent cryptographic systems depend on the difficulty of factoring numbers. The Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series 148 (1), 213. This "Cited by" count includes citations to the following articles in Scholar.

In 1979, when Bennett âat IBM Research, where he remains todayâ and Brassard âat the UniversitÃ© de MontrÃ©al, where he is currently Canada Research Chair in Quantum Information Scienceâ, began working together, there was not the least hint of this future scenario. My algorithm showed that you can isolate and fix the error and still preserve the computationâ. Search. Done. What I showed is that a quantum computer could factor large numbers fairly quickly. Their ideas are playing a key role in the development of quantum technologies for communication and computation.â, Quantum cryptography emerged in the realm of basic science, but in a few decades has produced a whole new technology that is now commercially available and tipped as a rising market. The ones marked * may be different from the article in the profile. âfor enabling and scaling quantum computations.â. Google Scholar The cryptographic protocols now in use, which underpin the security of all our Internet communications and transactions, are based on the existence of mathematical problems that computers cannot solve, and in the mid-1980s there was nothing to suggest that this might one day change.

As the citation states, âShor discovered that quantum computers could factorize integers much faster than any supercomputer, therefore compromising the security of conventional cryptographic schemes.â.

To create quantum cryptography, Bennett and Brassard made use of one of those strange phenomena of the quantum world: superposition, which, in simplified terms, makes it possible for a single particle to be in two or more places at once. The algorithm that challenged classical cryptography, Shor, Professor of Applied Mathematics at MIT, discovered that the supposedly intractable problem on which standard cryptography was based, the prime factorization of large numbers âi.e. This "Cited by" count includes citations to the following articles in Scholar. For Brassard, âthe 19th century was the era of steam power, the 20th century was the era of information, and the 21st century will go down in history as the quantum age, the age in which quantum technologies dominate all the changes occurring in society, in a way we cannot yet foresee.â, Shor, meantime, believes that âit will be 5 or 10 years before a quantum computer can do anything approaching useful.â With time, however, he is convinced that these machines will deliver revolutionary applications, in biomedicine, for instance: âAt the moment, it takes enormous amounts of computer time to simulate the behavior of molecules, but quantum computers could achieve that, and help design new drugs.â, The BBVA Foundation recognizes Charles H. Bennett, Gilles Brassard and Peter Shor for their fundamental role in the development of quantum computation and cryptography. Email address for updates.
