In the world of computation and digital communications the digital world is currently lacking in ‘security.' Yes, security is a feature that can never be attained one hundred percent. However, to ensure secure data we can use huge numbers and large cryptographic keys in combination with a statistical algorithm so that deceiving or decryption of information would become very difficult. The question then becomes what if someone reaches a level in computational speed like none other with the support of advanced chip technology and cracks all the available mathematical algorithms built in combination with the available cryptographic keys? Then the world of digital computation, which makes us feel secure, becomes at risk. Recent research and achievements in advanced technology, especially in Quantum Computation and Encryption, are ringing danger bells towards conventional computational security methodologies. In this paper, I will discuss current security trends, advancements in quantum computation and traditional computation security methods that feel insecure and discuss a new methodology that uses the spin rotation of photons to add the power of quantum mechanics to classical encryption algorithms to insure a balanced key generation.
