Current trends and challenges in post-quantum cryptography
If large enough quantum computers can be built then they will factor integers and solve elliptic curve discrete logarithms, and therefore break most public key cryptosystems in current use. In response, a whole new field of post-quantum cryptography (cryptosystems that can be implemented on classical computers but are secure against an attacker with a quantum computer) has been initiated and is rapidly growing. I will survey some of the main trends in post-quantum crypto, focussing primarily on systems based on isogenies and lattices, and present a number of challenges and open problems.
The talk will take place in the Salle des Profs at 16:30. Coffee, tea and biscuits will be served in the foyer by the Salle des Profs, from 16:00. The Salle des Profs is on the 9th floor of building NO, of the Campus de la Plaine. Maps of the campus and directions are available here.
