Quantum computers are a fact and with the quantum computers follows quantum algorithms. How will quantum computing affect how we look at public-key cryptography? And more specifically: how will it affect the most widely used public-key algorithm RSA? The impact of quantum computing is unimaginable and it will affect a massive amount of applications like e-commerce, social networks, mobile phones, generally our day to day life. A solution has been presented: Post-Quantum Cryptography. Even though Post-Quantum primitives have been suggested, there is not yet any algorithms that has been chosen to replace our current public-key standards. A standardizing process was started in 2016 by NIST and is still ongoing.
