At the infosec conference first day, Ron Rivest delivered his message that ‘I give fusion power a higher chance of succeeding than quantum computing’. In the talk he outlines why he thinks that Quantum Computing will not break crypto codes anytime soon – due to scaling issues and the inability to build systems reliable and large enough.

Of course he is not the only one to share that view that Quantum Computing is a long way from primetime or is simply hocus pocus.
