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
