Post-quantum security of symmetric-key constructions

QCCC Seminar

Chen Bai (QuICS)
Wednesday, December 7, 2022 - 1:00pm
ATL 3100A and Virtual Via Zoom

In this talk I will give a brief introduction about the security of various symmetric-key constructions against quantum attackers in two models: Q1 model and Q2 model. I’ll talk about the difference between those two models, why Q1 model is more realistic and some recent results about the post-quantum security of block ciphers in the Q1 model.
