I've read/watched a lot about Quantum Computers, trying to really get into the physics of it. Seems like the topic is poorly explained. I do understand that it takes a lot of qbits to beat modern encryption, so there's no concern for a while longer.
So while I do see lots of articles/videos claiming Shor's algorithm will defeat encryption, nothing has explained how the key is captured, and/or how the hashing/salting of the key is undone such that the algorithm has a proper number to work with. Seems like those are pretty big hurdles to overcome regardless of the algorithm.
