Verification of Quantum Cryptography

In recent years, the verification of cryptographic schemes on the computational level (i.e., without symbolic abstractions) has seen great progress. For example, various state-of-the-art cryptographic schemes were analyzed using the EasyCrypt tool using a probabilistic relational Hoare logic (pRHL). However, existing tools and logics are unsuited for analysis of quantum cryptographic protocol - be it protocols using quantum mechanics, or protocols secure against quantum adversaries. In this talk, we explain why pRHL is not sound for quantum cryptography, and show how to lift the ideas from pRHL to the quantum setting. (With the long-term goal of getting a quantum version of EasyCrypt.)
