School of Computer Science, McGill University
Introductions to classical cryptographic tools and quantum computing will first be presented. The basic notion of Quantum Key Distribution will then be discussed. Then information theoretical notions of cryptography over quantum states such as encryption and authentication will be covered. Computational analogues will also be presented: quantum public key-cryptography, public-key authentication and impossibility of quantum digital signatures. Some application to Quantum error correcting codes will be presented. And finally, Multi-party computations over classical and quantum data be described.
