We survey some results in quantum cryptography. After a brief

introduction to classical cryptography, we provide the physical and

mathematical background needed and present some fundamental protocols

from quantum cryptography, including quantum key distribution and

quantum bit commitment protocols.

We introduce a new type of cryptographic primitive that we call hiding fingerprinting. No classical fingerprinting scheme is hiding. We construct quantum hiding fingerprinting schemes and argue their optimality.

Forty years ago, Wiesner pointed out that quantum mechanics raises the striking possibility of money that cannot be counterfeited according to the laws of physics. We propose the first quantum money scheme that is (1) public-key, meaning that anyone can verify a banknote as genuine, not only the bank that ... more >>>
