PKI: the end
Date: 21 Mar 2005 05:19:03 -0800
Today, PKI rely on primary numbers. Humans don't know how to calculate
primary numbers. We humans don't know nothing about primary numbers. We
can only take all numbers in a range (from 10000000000 to 999999999999)
and validate if some of those numbers are primary nums.
One day someone figure out how primary numbers work: it will be the end
of PKI. The end of SSL, X.509 certificates, digital signature and
encryption as we know it.
Are there algorithms for digital signature and encryption which doesn't
require private/public key pairs? That doesn't rely on primary numbers?
I know for HMAC, enything else?
