EXCLUSIVE ANALYSIS – All encrypted emails, files and hard drives that currently rely on 256-bit encryption (such as AES or RSA) may be retroactively broken by the NSA in the next three years, thanks to rapid advances in quantum computing recently announced by Google scientists.

The NSA is currently archiving all encrypted communications and storing the digital files on offline storage servers in its “Bumblehive” domestic spying facility in Utah. Currently these digital files cannot be broken because classical computing presents a strongly asymmetrical complexity problem that makes breaking encrypted files prohibitively time consuming and expensive. Files encrypted with 2^n bits currently present computational complexity that requires 2^n computer power to break. In other words, encrypting files is easy (linear), but breaking encryption is incredibly difficult (logarithmic).

But rapid advances in quantum computing transform the breaking of encryption from a logarithmic mathematical problem to a linear problem, collapsing the complexity to 2 * n instead of 2 ^ n. The enormity of this difference can only be appreciated when you do the math. Calculate 2 ^ 512, versus 2 * 512 and compare the answers. Quantum computing effectively transforms certain logarithmic computations into linear computations, and its best application is breaking encryption. (Quantum computing isn’t really “computing” at all, by the way. For a more detailed mathematical explanation of the hyper-dimensional, hyper-computational capabilities of quantum phenomena, read this explanation at Natural News.)

The NSA will likely be able to break all 256-bit encryption within about three years, according to admissions from Google scientists

What all this means is that within the next three years, according to a recently released paper published by Google scientists — who appear to be conducting research on a D-Wave quantum computing framework — quantum computers will exceed 256 qubits, allowing them to almost effortlessly crack all 256-bit encryption (but not all at once, they still have to pick and choose which files to crack). Roughly each year beyond that, the capabilities of these quantum computers will reportedly double, meaning that cracking 512-bit, 1024-bit or even 2048-bit encryption is just a few years away. This obviously has huge implications for military communications and global geopolitics.

This means the NSA will be able to retroactively break all the encrypted emails, files and other digital communications that it has surreptitiously hoovered up and stored on its servers.

Importantly, whatever information you’ve sent via encrypted email services may be retroactively broken by the NSA, transforming your encrypted emails and files into plain text files. This is true across all the encrypted emails and files you’ve sent over the last decade or more.
