Just proposes the use of brain waves to

Just like the 20th century was marked as the Nuclear Age, today we are on the cusp of equallymomentous breakthrough: the advent of the quantum computers that draw their computationalcapabilities from quantum mechanics and that exploit the ability of quantum bits (Qubits) to exist inmultiple states. In the future, quantum capability would come off as the sole definition of hegemonyby the state that possesses it as these computers not only have the power to make advances incancer research and unlock the mysteries of the universe but also have the ability to rock the currentsecurity protocols and gain access to encrypted data in the military, hospital, banks and personalspace. This statement is far from theoretical and has been proven by Shor’s algorithm which factorslarge numbers faster than classical computers which is the foundation of today’s encryptionstandards. This raises the need for quantum safe encryption even in a pre-quantum era. ThisQuantum-safe encryption will rely on mathematical approaches that even quantum computers havedifficulty solving. The challenge is ensuring that every point through which data flows, and even thedata itself, is wrapped in quantum-safe security.Brain-fingerprinting is a nascent technology which works on the principle that the brain generates aunique wave pattern for each individual when that person encounters a familiar stimulus. Thistechnology records electrical brain wave responses of an individual to words, phrases or pictures ona screen. This paper proposes the use of brain waves to encrypt and decrypt classified files and as asecurity measure which cannot be bypassed using a quantum computer as well.The waves generatedby an electroencephalogram(EEG) can be used by applying various transforms(such as multiply,divide, fourier transforms,etc.) to encrypt data. If this is made possible then this technology wouldmake all other security protocols redundant and would combat the bane of the quantum computers.
