1. Google starts experimenting with quantum-secure connections in Chrome

    If quantum computing ever lives up to its promise (and that’s still a big ‘if’ at this stage), somebody could use this technology to retroactively break any communications that were encrypted with today’s standard encryption algorithms. To guard against this, Google today announced that it will now start experimenting using post-quantum algorithms to encrypt the connections between the experimental Canary version of Chrome and some of its services.
