    Abstract:

    With digital technology and increasingly linked economies comes a new set of risks from a slew of cyber-attacks. To improve cyber resilience, a cybersecurity capability system comprised of People, Process, and Technology is required to control the ongoing advancement of science and technology, particularly the quantum computer. As a result, attempts have been undertaken to lay new groundwork for cryptography research in computer communication networks. One of these attempts resulted in the creation of quantum cryptography technology, the security of which is based on quantum mechanics rules. Cyberspace security has emerged as the most important problem for the Internet in the foreseeable future. The objective of this research paper is to discuss the flaws and security problems in contemporary encryption, quantum cryptography essential concepts, real-world application use of this technology, and lastly the future direction of quantum cryptography.
