Guest Lecture Focus

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 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 post-quantum Internet over the existing Internet. The talk will cover recent research that resulted in start-ups creation initiatives, including Secret Double Octopus, SecretSkyDB, SodsBC.
