Re: ISP TOS restrictions on servers

Just a quick question. I thought that the encryption system used was
based on factoring a large prime. If so, won't it become obsolete when
quantum computers become available? That is something that I expect to
see in this lifetime.

At which point folks will switch to ECC (like the NSA already did) or some other scheme which doesn't rely on the factorization of large primes.
