Unravelling the Chinese Factoring Algorithm: Is Our Current Encryption Still Safe?

A recent article, posted on the physics ArXiv by Chinese researchers, has caused quite a buzz in the quantum world. These researchers claim to have discovered a new factoring algorithm, which is sublinear in the number of qubits it requires. What does this mean? Well, in one instance they demonstrated factoring of a 48-bit integer (261980999226229) … Continue reading

Can I Trust You? Let’s Flip a Coin

How can two mistrustful parties fairly toss a coin? As it turns out, this problem of weak coin flipping (WCF) is a fundamental cryptographic primitive, where quantum WCF can achieve theoretically perfect information security over modern communication networks. In a recent paper, researchers from Sorbonne Université, the University of Vienna, California Institute of Technology and … Continue reading
