    Researchers from the University of Toronto and the University of Vigo believe quantum cryptography is the solution to the hacker problem. They are turning their proof-of-concept into a prototype. Researchers say quantum encryption is what will finally stop hackers. University of Toronto Professor Hoi-Kwong Lo, a faculty member in The Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering and the Department of Physics, as well as his team consisting of Senior Research Associate Dr. Bing Qi and Professor Marcos Curty of the University of Vigo, say they have found a new quantum encryption method that can trip up even the most sophisticated hackers.
