Rob,

That's great press. Congatulations.

Has anyone analyzed the complexity of attacking these
algorithms with a quantum computer? One of the weaknesses
of factorization is that there is a good QC algorithm
for it. All data now secured by encryption that depends
on the hardness of factorization very likely becomes
insecure in a decade or two.
