Overlay Security: Quantum-Safe Communication over the Internet Infrastructure

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The need for a quantum-safe Internet is emerging, and this is a great opportunity to re-examine the legacy of public key infrastructure. There is a need for
perspective on the evolution of cryptography over the years, including the perfect
information-theoretical secure schemes and the computationally secure schemes,
in particular. There is also a need to examine the evolving Internet infrastructure
to identify efficient design and secure cryptographic schemes over the existing
Internet infrastructure. A combination of overlay security, blockchain, and Merkle
trees with Lamport’s signatures offers just such an easily implementable quantum safe Internet.
