There exists public-key algorithms that are resistant against quantum
computers, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NTRUEncrypt for example, an
overview can be found on
However, they are usually not as well analysed als ElGamal and RSA, and
they often require quite large keys to be secure against known attacks.
For these reasons I would not trust them yet.
