The launch of quantum computing has created new challenges in the field of cryptography. Nowadays this field of research is extremely active in physics, mathematics and computer science. In this paper we present an overview of the most common classical and quantum protocols. The former are usually defined through a 5-uple given by a plaintext space, a ciphertext space, an encryption and decryption space, an encryption function and a decryption function.

Abstract

The launch of quantum computing has created new challenges in the field of cryptography. Nowadays this field of research is extremely active in physics, mathematics and computer science. In this paper we present an overview of the most common classical and quantum protocols. The former are usually defined through a 5-uple given by a plaintext space, a ciphertext space, an encryption and decryption space, an encryption function and a decryption function. Here, we show how to unify quantum and classical protocols by using the same formalism of the 5-uple mentioned above.
