Post Quantum Communication Over the Internet Infrastructure

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The need for a post-quantum 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 evolved Internet infrastructure to identify and design efficient and secure cryptographic schemes over the existing Internet infrastructure. A combination of overlay security, Blockchain, and Merkle trees with Lamport's signatures implies such an easily implementable post quantum Internet. The tutorial covers the basics of post-quantum techniques, one-time-pad (OTP), secret-sharing (SS), secure multi-party computation (SMPC), zero-knowledge proof (ZKP) based on SMPC in the head, Hash (SHA) based stateless signature (HBSS), Symmetric encryption (AES), Asymmetric encryption (SVP), and post-quantum Blockchain.
