Information Conservational Security with “Black Hole” Keypad Compression and Scalable One-Time Pad — A Quantum Intelligence Approach to Pre- and Post-Quantum Cryptography

Wen-Ran Zhang

Abstract: Whereas it is widely deemed impossible to overcome the optimality of the one-time pad (OTP) cipher in pre- and post-quantum cryptography, this work shows that the optimality of information theoretic security of OTP is paradoxical from the perspective of information conservational computing and cryptography. To prove this point, information theoretic security of OTP is extended to information conservational security of scalable one-time pad (S-OTP) where total key length can be compressed to a condensed tiny minimum through “black hole” keypad compression coupled with “big bang” data recovery. Thus, S-OTP makes it possible for secure transmission of long messages that used to be impossible with OTP. It is proven that if the security of OTP is optimal, S-OTP would be impossible; on the other hand, if S-OTP is not information theoretically secure, OTP would not be secure either. Thus, we have a proof by contradiction on the paradoxical nature of OTP optimality. It is further proven that a summation with percentage distribution is a special case of equilibrium-based bipolar quantum cellular automata. This proof bridges a classical world with a quantum world and makes it possible to combine the advantages of both approaches for pre- and post-quantum cryptography. It is suggested that the findings of this work form an analytical paradigm of quantum intelligence machinery toward perfect information conservational security. Some mysteries in nature and science are identified and discussed. In particular, the question is posted: Could modern science have been like a well-founded building with a floor of observable being and truth but missing its roof for equilibrium, harmony, information conservation, and logically definable causality?
