Trapdoor claw-free functions in quantum cryptography

February 9, 2022


Carl Miller - NIST


Abstract. Trapdoor claw-free functions (TCFs) are central to a recent wave of groundbreaking work in quantum cryptography that was originated by U. Mahadev and other authors.  TCFs enable protocols for cryptography that involve quantum computers and classical communication.  This expository talk will begin with a brief crash course on quantum information.  I will then present the concept of a TCF and discuss some applications.
