Bug#799336: general: Prepare for quantum computers breaking encryptions

Package: general
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

We should prepare that invention of quantum computers may break
SSH, HTTPS, PGP, and other encryptions we use in practice.

Packages like these providing SSH should be developed around this problem.

Also there should be written a user manual about new security threats
posed by quantum computers, and how to configure software to get around
these problems.
