Proving Riemann Hypothesis is a million dollar problem, but I am more interested in understanding its ramifications in the practical world. According to many sources, one such effect will be jeopardising the cryptography framework underlying the internet which enables us to use passwords and transfer private information.
According to Britannica
A proof of the Riemann hypothesis would have far-reaching consequences for number theory and for the use of primes in cryptography.
My question is why cant we assume the hypothesis true and go ahead with it? In other words why aren't hackers able to leverage RH yet ?
