With a quantum computer, you can do one time pad ciphers. Thing is that encryption with normal computers is costly. If you have qbits doing the job, you are no longer forced to rely on some algorithm to produce random numbers, but you also do the job quickly. So, if the key is then kept secret, you won't break it...
