Quantum computing is advancing quickly. The number of qubits in a quantum computer is increasing to make them more powerful and better algorithms are being created. Quantum computing became a real threat to cybersecurity because it can break traditional cryptosystems. If encrypted sensitive data is captured today and its encryption can be broken in four years, that still represents a big risk that affects many things, such as credit cards, which do not expire for many years, or even worse— proprietary source code. Companies need to adapt to resist what the future brings.
Some of the questions that we will discuss in the presentation include:
- How are we going to face such problems from the DevSecOps perspective?
- How long will it be ok for source code to travel across the Internet using protocols vulnerable to quantum attacks?
- Will we need quantum computers in the continuous integration scheme of our organizations to provide the security we need?
