Goodbye to Elliptic Curves? … Not, Quite … Here Come Isogenies

The most interesting thing I have learn in the last few years is the theory of elliptic curves. How can something so beautiful as an elliptic curve be able to create unique encryption keys for Bob and Alice, and allow Alice to digitally sign messages? It is just pure cryptography magic! But, they have a fundamental problem, and it’s a big one … they can be cracked by quantum…
