I'm trying to write a realistic story around Quantum computing and was wondering how different a network exploit/hack would look if a Quantum computer was to hack into a private network, instead of directly breaking the encryption.

  • $\begingroup$ Hi, welcome to QC! could you explain precisely what do you mean by a hack? Questions should be on-the-point, clear, if necessary provide feedback for notions that are not basic to quantum computation, and it is also good practice to clarify the motivation. $\endgroup$
