Physical Cryptography

Mariana Costiuc and Diana Maimut and George Teseleanu

Abstract: We recall a series of physical cryptography solutions and provide the reader with relevant security analyses. We mostly turn our attention to describing attack scenarios against schemes solving Yao's millionaires' problem, protocols for comparing information without revealing it and public key cryptosystems based on physical properties of systems.
