Quantum-Resistant Network for Classical Client Compatibility
Keywords:Cloud Computing Security, Homomorphic Encryption, Quantum Computing, Zero-Knowledge
Quantum computing is no longer a thing of the future. Shor’s algorithm proved that a quantum computer could
traverse key of factoring problems in polynomial time. Because the time-complexity of the exhaustive key
search for quantum computing has not reliably exceeded the reasonable expiry of crypto key validity, it is believed
that current cryptography systems built on top of computational security are not quantum-safe. Quantum
key distribution fundamentally solves the problem of eavesdropping; nevertheless, it requires quantum
preparatory work and quantum-network infrastructure, and these remain unrealistic with classical computers.
In transitioning to a mature quantum world, developing a quantum-resistant mechanism becomes a stringent
problem. In this research, we innovatively tackled this challenge using a non-computational difficulty scheme
with zero-knowledge proof in order to achieve repellency against quantum computing cryptanalysis attacks for
universal classical clients.
