General Properties of Quantum Bit Commitment [article]

Jun Yan
2020 IACR Cryptology ePrint Archive  
These properties not only enable us to simplify both the construction and the security analysis of quantum bit commitment schemes significantly but also suggest a potential use of quantum bit commitments  ...  The concept of quantum bit commitment was introduced more than three decades ago in a failed attempt to base unconditionally secure bit commitment solely on laws of quantum mechanics.  ...  We thank Dominique Unruh for inspiring discussions with him about the strictness of the quantum binding property.  ...

Cryptographic Protocols under Quantum Attacks [article]

Carolin Lunemann
2011 arXiv   pre-print
We study the security of quantum and classical protocols against adversaries that are assumed to exploit quantum effects to their advantage.  ...  Security in the quantum world means that quantum computation does not jeopardize the assumption, underlying the protocol construction.  ...  Acknowledgments Thanks to all the people, I met on the way of my PhD education, for introducing me to new ways of thinking, inspiring me by fascinating ideas, and helping me in so many other ways.  ...

MLC No-go Theorems: Reinterpretation and Extension [article]

Minh-Dung Dang, Patrick Bellot
2008 arXiv   pre-print
This model could give a more general view on the concealing/binding trade-off of quantum bit commitment protocols.  ...  This interpretation leads to a global three-party model, involving Alice's and Bob's machines and the environment coupled to the macroscopic channel, using the decoherence scheme in quantum measurements  ...  So, such a short-term oracle cannot help to build secure two-party computations, for long-term usage. B.  ...

Generation and Distribution of Quantum Oblivious Keys for Secure Multiparty Computation

Mariano Lemus, Mariana F. Ramos, Preeti Yadav, Nuno A. Silva, Nelson J. Muga, André Souto, Nikola Paunković, Paulo Mateus, Armando N. Pinto
2020 Applied Sciences  
With the presented hybrid approach of quantum and classical, we obtain a practical and high-speed oblivious transfer protocol.  ...  We present a method to generate and distribute oblivious keys by exchanging qubits and by performing commitments using classical hash functions.  ...  This is achieved by the HMQ construction [35] which, given a standalone secure commitment scheme and a Random Oracle, outputs a universally-composable commitment scheme, which is perfectly hiding and  ...

On the computational hardness needed for quantum cryptography [article]

Zvika Brakerski, Ran Canetti, Luowen Qian
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Building on the work of Yan (2022) which shows equivalence between EFI pairs and statistical commitment schemes, we show that EFI pairs are necessary and sufficient for a large class of quantum-cryptographic  ...  Specifically, while it was known how to construct commitments schemes, oblivious transfer, and general secure multiparty computation from any EFI, we show how to construct EFI pairs from minimalistic versions  ...  Acknowledgements LQ thanks Prabhanjan Ananth and Henry Yuen for the motivating discussions prior to this work.  ...

Practical Governmental Voting with Unconditional Integrity and Privacy [chapter]

Nan Yang, Jeremy Clark
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Where the voter casts an in-person (and possibly paper) ballot and leaves, as is common in a governmental election, the majority of the proposals fall in the category of providing unconditional integrity  ...  However as far as we know, no paper has succeeded in providing both unconditional integrity and privacy in this setting-it has only been explored in boardroom voting schemes where voters participate in  ...  The second author acknowledges funding for this work from NSERC and FQRNT.  ...

Computationally Binding Quantum Commitments [chapter]

Dominique Unruh
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present a new definition of computationally binding commitment schemes in the quantum setting, which we call "collapse-binding".  ...  The definition applies to string commitments, composes in parallel, and works well with rewindingbased proofs.  ...  We thank Ansis Rosmanis for discussions on insecure commitments based on collision-resistant hash functions, and Serge Fehr for discussions on the DFRSS-binding definition.  ...
