Cloudflare wants to protect the internet from quantum computing



It is widely accepted that Quantum computing can change AI, weather simulation, financial modelling, health care, and much more. Moreover, Quantum computing can also shake up encryption.

Without even accessing the post-quantum cryptography, hackers can access the sensitive data of the user with the help of quantum computing. The most common sensitive data includes credit card info of users.

To prevent hackers from accessing users data, Cloudflare, an internet infrastructure company, is now testing the post-quantum cryptography technology.

Now, it is reported that the company is sharing its open source software package, Cloudflare Interoperable Reusable Cryptographic Library aka CIRCL on GitHub.

However, the internet infrastructure company is not able to solve the problems that inflate for encryption.

The company is trying to “quantum-proof” TLS, the encryption technology commonly known as SSL.

The SSL can protect the connections between both web browsers and servers.

In a blog post, the company said: “We are trying to improve and propose standards to help make the internet a better place.”
