Just realized that this also seems on topic for this list (since it's directly relevant to e2e messaging, especially forms like OTR).

So, I understand that QM algos can pretty much dismantle all popular asymmetric encryption algos with enough q-bits, but I haven't thought hard enough to see if they also can be used to compromise communications that used DH to do PFS underneath the initial handshake.


Please do not email me anything that you are not comfortable also sharing with the NSA.
