Encryption will probably be far more advanced in 30 years. I wouldn't even consider it to be effictive if you had it this day and age. It would just take way to long to cycle through imo. It's a good theory though, it's just too many possibilities to be relevant.

well what i mean by reasonable is that processing power will be so great by then that brute forcing all combinations could be practical so i doubt text based passwords will even be used.

processing power doubles every year (approx.)
4 * 2 ^ 20
4,194,304 ghz on a high end consumer processor in 20 years if the trend continues (it has for 50 years)
10gflops for a 4ghz processor nowadays.
so thats about...
one exaflop
faster than the fastest supercomputer in existence today on a highend consumer pc.
that would make text based bruteforcing easy.

per this quote it actually increases faster
This ignores a number of trends which Moore's law does not take into account. For example, the clock cycle of processors increases along with the increase in the number of transistors per chip. This means that processor power grows faster than Moore's law.

Moore's law states 2 years, not one. Also, it's reached a point where speed doesn't quite double, but the amount of cpus they can fit on a chip is getting bigger. Also, just because computing power is getting faster and cheaper, that doesn't mean storage space will grow at the same rate (although it's close). Still 93^16 is a ridiculously huge number and in 20 years we'll have new forms of securely authenticating anyways (biometric, etc.).
The glass is neither half-full nor half-empty; it's merely twice as big as it needs to be.

Lol yeah i am personally a fan of that theory, that at a certain point computer intelligence will create better versions of itself faster than we can until it reaches its physical limits, whatever those are.

2045 to 2060 wouldnt be unreasonable

we're gonna have so much fun then lolll
