Private key schems
One area this method might be particularly well suited for is private key schemes.  In those schemes, the key is a secret, and since it is indistinguishable from a randome number, the brute force attack requires at least O(2^n) trials where n is teh number of bits in the key.  Concpetually an analog circuit with millions of junctions woudl then be very hard to brute force (i.e. try all possible values from 0 to 2^n.).

Google "proved" the D-Wave 2 they operate jointly with NASA (mainly paid for by Google) can operate "up to ∼ 108 times faster".
I've written before about the impact the Internet of Things (IoT) will have on electronics sales including the special role played by analog devices in IoT.
Until about a decade ago, thermal energy was considered almost entirely as an analog, bulk phenomena.
Unless you live in a cave without any media access (which, I suppose, would preclude your reading this blog) you have heard about the Internet of Things (IoT).
With large scale integration of analog functions, we can probably bring eyesight to the blind.
