Universal gate quantum computers can run Shor’s algorithm to break modern forms of modern cryptography. It was discovered in 1994!
Using Qiskit Aqua library, you can factor numbers (the basis of RSA cryptography) using Shor’s algorithm with 10 lines of code!
Let’s import Shor, QuantumInstance, and Aer, a quantum simulator.
You can also change the backend to a real quantum chip. This example uses the qasm_simulator, but you can change the backend to a real quantum chip!
We setup the quantum instance and the number of shots, or runs, of this algorithm
Of course, right now we can only factor small numbers, but this demonstrates how far we’ve come with quantum computing!
