The secure email provider Tutanota has revealed that it is working together with the L3S Research Institute of Leibniz University of Hanover on a new research project called PQmail which aims to to implement quantum computer resistant cryptography in a freely available email application.

The reason for this is that once quantum computers become widely available, all currently encrypted emails can be decrypted using the technology. Cybercriminals are currently storing encrypted information in order to decrypt it once large quantum computers become available.
