Quantum Money from Lattices

February 19, 2020 @ 5:15 pm - 6:15 pm

Speaker: Peter Shor (MIT)
Title: Quantum Money from Lattices
Abstract: Quantum money is a cryptographic protocol for quantum computers. A quantum money protocol consists of a quantum state which can be created (by the mint) and verified (by anybody with a quantum computer who knows what the “serial number” of the money is), but which cannot be duplicated, even by somebody with a copy of the quantum state who knows the verification protocol. Several previous proposals have been made for quantum money protocols. We will discuss the history of quantum money and give a protocol which cannot be broken unless lattice cryptosystems are insecure.
