What is Moore’s law, and how does it impact cryptography?

Moore’s law, explained

A fundamental concept in the technology sector, Moore’s law foretells the exponential rise in computing power over time and is named after Gordon Moore.

Gordon Moore, the co-founder and emeritus chairman of Intel Corporation, proposed Moore’s law in 1965. According to him, the number of transistors on microchips — the fundamental building blocks of electronic devices — will double roughly every two years while their production costs will stay the same or even go down. The consequences of this exponential rise in processing capacity for several facets of an individual’s digital life are vast. How does…
