Defeating Quantum Algorithms with Hash Functions

This article is a repost promoting content originally published elsewhere. See more things Dan's reposted.

In this post I’ll explain why quantum computers are useless to find hash function collisions, and how we can leverage this powerlessness to build post-quantum signature schemes. I’ll then describe a quantum computing model that you can try at home, and  one where hash function collisions are easy to find…
